Spring break has officially started! A ton of kid friendly DIYS coming your way! Today we worked on an easy DIY pillow bed. Since I wanted to make this one as kid friendly as possible we made a no sew pillow bed.
This was on my DIY to-do list since last year however I never planned on making it a no sew pillow bed. I’m glad I decided to do this over spring break because it pushed me to make it kid friendly . I really wanted t be able to make it together with the little guy.
- 1.5 yard of fleece fabric ( I got mine at hobby lobby – amazon also sells super cute fleece here – https://amzn.to/3dbmbhA )
- 3 pillows ( medium size) ( I got mine at walmart or you can also get some on amazon – https://amzn.to/390RGaR for a great deal! )
- hot glue
Total Cost – $21- $40
I guess pillow DIYS are trending right now I was at our local walmart and all the $3 dollar pillows were out I had to use the $6 dollar pillows. This pillow bed cost me around $35 dollar. Not to bad but I sure would of saved a ton if I would of bought cheaper pillows.
This took about about 1.5 hours to make. 🙂
Okay let make this DIY pillow Bed
First off we lay our fabric down with the pillows over it and marked where the two seams should be between the three pillows. I used some chalk for this. Than we hot glued the seams together. Honestly I was a bit iffy about using hot glue. I thought it would be stiff and not strong enough. To my surprise it was super strong! The fabric literally rips before the glue comes apart and you don’t feel the stiffness of the glue at all.

Next we cut slits on all edges of he fabric about 3/4″ of an inch in width each and about 2 inches deep.
Than we inserted the pillows into the fabric and tied the slits together to secure the pillows. Oleg got tired of tying the pieces together so I took over. It took me about 30-40 minutes to complete.
That’s it! This was super easy to make! He already took it camping and loves taking it everywhere with him! 😊😍
Hope this is helpful and inspires you to make your own DIY no sew pillow bed! Happy crafting and have a great weak! Let me know if you have any questions 🙂
