I can’t sew.
Well OK, actually maybe that isn’t the right choice of words.
I can sew . I just choose not to because I dislike it so (see what I did there?). I find the whole process quite daunting. Then when you add a sewing machine to the equation, I can literally feel drops of perspiration forming on my forehead.
That voice inside my head? It just screams NO! Just NO! (dramatic, as ever I know)
So as you can imagine, I live for ALL the alternative solutions to sewing products .

I’ll admit, using glue to bind fabric together might sound super weird.
I can already picture you reading this, and saying aloud ‘That’s weird,’. I agree – whilst it is slightly non conventional, it does work. Quite well actually. These floor cushions are proof of that (even if I did end up holding my breath throughout the entire ‘making’ process’).

And the best thing, this glue I have used is machine washable! Oh and another thing, I saved on fabric by using a cheap single sized bed sheet I bought from Primark Home. I managed to get two very decent sized floral floor cushions out of it

… From a bed sheet – I should probably add.

1 .Lay out your bed sheet the wrong way down on a flat surface (iron if needed). With a pencil and ruler draw a square outline on one side of the fabric. You can use an existing cushion cover if you want and trace the outline

2. Cut out the two squares with a sharp pair of scissors. You can use sewing pins to ensure the fabric doesn’t move if you intend to cut more than one piece of fabric at a time. If you are using a bed sheet like me, remove any existing hemming.

4 Now apply the Contact Adhesive Glue around the edges of both of the fabric squares.

Make sure you apply the glue to the correct side of the fabric as you will be turning the cushion inside out once completed

5. It’s also really important to apply the glue around BOTH of the fabric square edges.

Don’t forget to leave a 3-4 cm opening on both of the fabric squares clear of glue. This opening will be used to insert the the stuffing

6. Place the two fabric pieces together (so the openings line up)and press down firmly. If you are re positioning wait approximately 1 minute before joining surfaces. Gorilla Contact Adhesive Clear is then re-positionable for 2-4 minutes.

7.Leave the glue to cure for 24hrs

8. Once dried, turn the pillow in side out through the opening you have created.

9. Next, fill the cushion with stuffing through the opening.

You can use pegs or clips to hold the two sides of fabric together while it dries.

And you are done!

  1. I was looking for a good quality fabric glue for soo long, really hope this gorilla glue will be effective.

    Can’t really thank you enough for this floor cushion idea, I’m so into home decor gonna definitely try this one out!

    It looks soo is good in such fewer efforts. It seems quite easy to make.

  2. You’re talking to someone who once sewed a pair of window panels by hand and with iron-on tape rather than get the machine out of the closet and set it up. So wish I had known about this method then! I would definitely do this. Thanks. Love your blog. It’s just my speed.

  3. This is such a great idea! I’ve just been looking online to buy floor cushions and was put off by the price! I will definitely be giving this a go, thank you.

    1. I do sew and do upholstery,
      This is a quick and brilliant idea
      Does the glue dry soft of hard around the edges?
      Thx for post.
