No-Sew "Braided" Fleece Pillow

This tutorial for a No-Sew Braided Edge Fleece Pillow is long overdue.  My tutorials for doing a "faux" braided edge on single and double thick fleece blankets are my two most popular blog posts ever.  I've gotten quite a few questions over the years about whether or not this method works for pillows.  It most certainly does and I've teamed up with Fairfield World to bring you the tutorial.  (I was provided with product and compensated for this this post, but all ideas and opinions are my own)

The best part is that there is no sewing involved and you get this fun braided look on the edge instead of the uncomfortable knots that so many no-sew fleece projects have.

All you need is a 16-in Poly-fil Soft Touch Pillow Insert (or other desired size) and 1/2 yard of two colors of coordinating fleece.

You can get my full tutorial and step-by-step photos on the Fairfield World blog here.

Granddad's Memory Pillow


If you've been a reader here for more than a year or so, you may remember that my Granddad passed away last April.  After our family members had a chance to get the things that were most meaningful to them, there were still quite a few pieces of clothing that Granddad wore often, so I've been gradually turning them into keepsakes for various family members.  Last Christmas I made some of his old boot socks into some fun Sock Snowmen (Tutorial here).

Then I made most of his Western shirts into Memory Quilts for my Nana, Mom, and Uncle for Christmas.
