This no-sew craft is great for kids with a sweet tooth. Your child can create fluffy no-stitch pillows with little supervision.

What You'll Need:

  • 2/3 yard of fabric
  • Blunt scissors
  • Cotton batting
  • Fabric glue
  • 1 yard of grosgrain ribbon
  • Permanent markers

Step 1: Cut a 20x24-inch piece of fabric. Roll a 12-inch strip of cotton batting. Place the batting on the wrong side of the fabric. Roll the fabric around the batting.

Step 2: Glue the end seam in place to close the roll.

Step 3: Cut the grosgrain ribbon in half. Tie each piece in a bow around each end of the fabric roll. Fringe the edges of the fabric.

Step 4: Use permanent markers to draw a favorite flavor label to make the pillow look like candy.
