This sandbag pillow project is soooo simple, it’s nearly embarrassing!
But if you’re like me, and you like pillows but can’t find your sewing machine pedal, (best excuse yet!), you’ll love how easy this is. And it looks cool too.
Visit your local hardware store, and ask if they have any sandbags. Ours run about $1.25 each and they are the perfect size for a little no sew burlap pillow.
Using tape (this is Martha Stewart’s craft tape which is EXCELLENT, sticks very well to fabric), run a tape down the centre. Place pieces of tape on both sides of the centre tape, then remove the centre.
Place plastic wrap underneath where you plan to paint so it won’t bleed through.
Using acrylic craft paint, (in this case black), paint on your stripe. I went pretty heavy so it covered well.
Remove the tape and allow stripe to dry.
Stuff a small pillow into the sandbag…
… and tie it shut with twine. The clothes pin was added to have it appear like it was holding the works together.
For this sandbag pillow, a house number was sewn in place. Nice, bold number hit!

Wasn’t I right that this was too easy for a tutorial? And with no sewing machine pedal in sight…
