Materials for your donut pillow:

  • 2 Donut Coloured Fabric – 1.5 yards
  • 1 Icing Fabric – 0.75 yards
  • Scissors
  • Glue Gun
  • Stuffing

TIP: Your pillow can be any size you like but make sure you have double the amount of donut fabric!

Step 1

Fold each square into smaller squares by folding them twice more and then place them on top of each other.

Step 2

You can pin them in the center through each layer to hold them together if you want.

Step 3

Cut the fabric around the edge from corner to corner to make a circle. Just make sure that the three circles have the exact same size.

Step 4

Then cut the same shape on the lower corner for the hole of your donut.

Step 5

You can now take off the pins to see the circle. Don’t worry if it’s not perfect circle. Take the icing fabric and cut off an inch more of its lower corner.

Step 6

Cut about an inch off the outer part of the icing fabric, too.

Step 7

Afterwards, you can lay the icing fabric at the center of the donut fabrics. Next, using a glue gun, apply a thin line of glue around the edge of the middle hole of the donut.

Step 8

So just go all the way around the donut hole with the glue gun and press with your hands on top of it to secure the glue.

Step 9

Once the icing fabric is completely attached, place the bottom layer of the donut on top of the icing with the icing fabric facing in and using our glue gun again, we’re going to glue the outside edges of the donut together. Stay as close to edge as possible making a thin line of glue while working your way all the way around. Leave a couple of inches unglued so you can flip it inside out.

Step 10

Once it’s flipped inside out, let’s glue the edges around the middle hole leaving a couple of inches unglued (this is where we’ll stuff the pillow stuffing later).

Step 11

Now the BEST part :). Let’s start stuffing the pillow. You can fluff it first to make sure there are no lumps in the stuffing.

And you’re done! Take a lookie at your DIY no-sew dainty donut pillow! They absolutely look so cute and snugly!
