For this repurposed towel pillow, feel free to use items you already have around the house. For example, if you don’t have cotton batting but have some scrap fabric, use that instead. For embellishments use silk flowers, buttons, or other crafting scraps that you don’t have a use for. The idea is to use old items in new ways, so get creative and have fun with it.


1. Begin by laying your towel flat. Fold it in half.
2. Run a strip of glue along the edges, taking care to leave one edge unglued as you will need to fill that part with the batting.
3. Press the edges together as soon as they are glued so they adhere together.
4. Fill the towel up with batting. You will notice the pillow shape quickly starting to form!
5. Add some glue to the one seam that is still open. Press the edges together to secure it closed.
6. Use your hands to fluff the pillow.
7. Glue on any additional embellishments you wish.

Now all you need to do is find somewhere to display your no sew repurposed towel pillow! Anywhere it goes, it is sure to add some simple and inexpensive charm to space.
