DIY Pillow Instructions
Place the bandanas on top of each other wrong side facing inwards, fold the bandanas in half and cut out a half heart shape.
Fold the hearts open keeping the two bandanas on top of each other. Use pinking shears to cut a fringe around the heart shaped bandanas. The fringe pieces should be at least 6.5 cm long and 2.5 cm wide. Anything shorter than 6.5 cm long will be difficult to weave and if the fringe is too long, you pillow will be a bit small. Fold the fringe over and make a small slit on the fold. You’ll use the slit to “weave” the edges of the pillow, so the smaller the better.
Tug gently to tighten. Continue weaving the fringe and periodically flip your heart over to make sure you haven’t missed any lonely little fringe pieces – you’ll end up with a wonky heart if you do. Leave the last five fringe pieces, stuff the heart and then finish off the pillow by weaving the last few pieces.

This no-sew bandana heart pillow is a lovely idea. Nice for a teens bedroom. Bandanas are economical too. I imagine the colorful casual pillow could even be left square as well. This is a nice project that can be finished in a short time, even while TV watching. Very sharp pinking shears a must!

Love this easy to make crafty project. Alternatively, you could also just tie the two fringed sides together instead of weaving. This would be a nice project using other fabrics that aren't too bulky. This would be fun to do as a project for a scout troop or to make with the kids. Thanks for sharing this fun and creative craft! So clever and easy to make!

I was at a loss about how to weave the fringe until I found the pictures and then it came to me. This is very easy to do and you don't need to just use bandanas. Any large pieces of left over material will work. And talk about inexpensive and cute! Thank you for sharing such a neat idea.

Love the look. Sorry, but I could use a little more explanation on how the weaving is done?
