How to Make a Latch Hook Rug Into a Pillow


Latch hook is a fun and rewarding craft that is fun for a wide variety of people who create both functional and artistic projects. Wall hangings, rugs and pillows are just a few of the types of items that can be made with the latch hook process. One way you can turn a small latch hook project into a useful household decorative item is to make it into a pillow.

Things You'll Need

  • Finished latch hook project
  • Fabric for pillow back (Heavy is best.)
  • Stuffing

Latch Hook Pillow

Trim any raw edges on your latch-hook to 1/2 inch of the yarn.

Cut a piece of fabric to the size of your latch hook, including the 1/2-inch edge.

Place the fabric right-side down on top of the yarn. Pin in place.

Sew along 3 sides with a 1/2-inch seam allowance, keeping your stitch line right where the yarn begins.

Turn the pillow right-side out and pull free any yarn caught in your seam.

Stuff the pillow to desired plumpness.

Fold both edges of the last side in by 1/2 inch. Sew in place.

Tips & Warnings

  • The sewing can be done by machine or by hand, but some sewing machines will have a difficult time with the heavy fabric and the rug backing.
  • Always check your seam to make sure the yarn is not caught in the stitches. If a strand does get caught, it can usually be pulled free afterward.
