DIY dishtowel pillow talk!

Must be the season of pillow talk! I made this DIY no sew dishtowel pillow some time ago, and forgot to share it!
Surprisingly enough, it still is in it's original place, when I show you, you will understand why I find this to be a surprise.

I loved the warm color and pattern of this dishtowel, and my intent was just to use it in the kitchen.

Then one fine sunny morning walking out of our bedroom, I realized the color scheme was the same as the pub room curtains...
sooooo....I whipped out my liquid glue stitch, folded the towel in half, stuffed it, ironed it,
and plopped it down on the chair.

I waited for Mike to notice it, and he of course did,because this is HIS man cave...

I said, I know, I know you hate it! 
He replied with, "well it's not my favorite" but it's not bad either...
That was In Novemeber, and it still sits in the very same place.

Lucy loves the man cave too!
{Mike actually took this picture of Lucy}
I did not know it until I uploaded my pictures one day..
I love this picture, she is so CUTE!
Have a great day...
 WOW us Wednesday
We did it Wednesday

NEWBIE party going on

Great idea, Debbie! I am soooo going to be on the hunt for a dish towel that I can make a "Debbie dishtowel pillow!"

Thats a great looking pillow. No way i would have ever guessed it was a towel. NO WAY..
I was just warming up my machine to make a few pillows today.
maybe you're right and it will be the year of the pillow.:)

Hi Debbie,
Happy New Year! I love your pillow, how innovative to use a dish towel. Love. Love. Love the man cave. Well done, girl! xo ~Liz

That is a cool pillow! So there is absolutely no sewing involved? Just the liquid stuff? I could do that! Maybe... ;-)

I laughed when I saw Lucy's photo, for some reason she reminded me one of the old time bathing beautifes shots you would see in an old magazine,, ( I know I'm strange but she did), so cute, its amazing what beautiful tea towels they make isn't it, I made a beautiful tote bag for my girls from some a couple of summers ago and they were really nice.
I think it made a lovely pillow and Mikes man cave is the envy of all man cave dwellers I'm certain of that.

I'm laughing at you because I made a dish towel pillow too and forgot to post about it. I made mine out of Christmas dish towels and they are put away now but I did purchase some cute dish towels to make other pillows though. I'm hoping to get them done sometime this week. Enjoy your day Debbie. Gail

Love the pillow! I hit on a big sale at Walmart a few years ago, & they had all these wonderful & really nice quality tea-towels on sale for less than a buck. I grab several (should have grabbed more or ALL). I made some into pillows & others for their intended purpose.

The Man Cave looks great! The Man is just about finished with his & then I'll share.

I have made dozens of tea towels into pillows. Such an easy peasy thing to do. I love that he left it. Are you familiar with the country song, What Would I DO If I Hadn't Met You? LOVE it!!! It is so me and my husband!!!

Great idea, really looks good in the man cave. And what a wonderful man cave Mike has!! Lucy sure loves it, too!! She is precious!

LOL had to laugh Debbie, I don't think men care if there are throw pillows in their man cave, but you are lucky he actually noticed it.

Debbie, The man cave looks like a wonderful Irish pub-how fun! and the picture of Lucy in the sun spots is beautiful.

Liquid glue stitch?!??? You mean there is hope for me to sew with glue??? I am checking into this since I can't sew a lick.

Love the fabric & the pillow, Debbie.

Have a beautiful day ~

Nice bar area! I like that idea. I did that once and now wish I had saved it. Love that picture of your dog too. They always find a spot of sunshine to lie in, don't they?

Guys are funny about throw pillows... My husband calls all the "extra" pillows on the bed girl pillows.
I like the pub pillow; it goes well with the room.
Have a great day.
Always, Queenie

At least YOUR hubby left it in place! MINE would have removed it the moment he saw it...if it had been something he didn't like. ;)

Happy New Year, Debbie! I would love to have you join me for Time Travel Thursday this week.

I have got to try this dishtowel pillow making thing. Lucy looks warm in the sun. I am trying to use a sunny spot too since our heat is not working right. Wifi was down when I got up, too. One of those days.

mmmmm....did i miss something or is that a sewing machine stitch I see. Was Santa nice or have you been hiding that from me. Or am I still in holiday recovery mode here. Probably the last. Hope to be back at it real soon and can't wait to see what fun we will be up to in 2012.

No Kate, you did not miss anything, that is the stitching from the actually dishtowel...the other end is liquid stitched...:) That is the beauty of it.

Great idea for a pillow. I once used a cloth napkin with a big button and that was easy also.

Yep, and I do like the pillow. Amazing how just a little something extra can make us feel so good. I collect dishtowls and have drawers of them. Some I have given away to daughters but perhaps I should rummage through one of those drawers... :)
