How To Turn Turkish Towels into No-Sew Pillow Covers!
Do you have a Turkish Towel collection thanks to subscription boxes? I do! I love these towels because they are lightweight, absorbent, and the patterns are classic. The only downside is that they stay in my linen closet until the warm weather of summer, which feels like such a waste for the rest of the year!
I decided to try out a simple DIY to get a new use out of Turkish Towels. In this post, I’ll show you how to turn any Turkish Towel into a pillow cover. (It only takes a minute, no sewing is required, and this would work great with large scarves, too!)
Step 1: Lay your towel on a flat surface and place the pillow you want to cover in the center:
Step 2: Fold each side of the excess fabric over the pillow:
Step 3: Fold the ends of the two fabric sides in a bit so that they taper into a point:
Step 4: Tie those two ends together into a knot:
And you’re done! A super-easy, no-cost way to give your living room a quick makeover!
(One other thing to keep in mind – iron or steam the towel before you use it so there are no wrinkles.)
