Poker Night Pillow Slip Cover Craft Project

These simple Poker Night pillow slip covers are the perfect way to transforms small space into a poker game room in a matter of minutes. Best of all when poker night is over, you can remove the slip covers and pack them away!

Living in a small space I am always trying to come up with great ways to decorate in new ways without using up all of my storage space. I came up with a simple no sew pillow slip cover project to help transform my small apartment into a poker night game room. These pillow covers can be made to size to cover your existing couch or bed pillows. Simply insert your pillow for some added Poker Night décor. I love these because once Poker Night is over I can take them off, fold them up, and not look at them until next week! If you want to play the best poker online, pkv games can be the best website for you to play this game. 

To make this easy Poker Night fabric craft project you will need:

  • Felt (in poker table top green, red, black, and white)
  • Scissors
  • No Sew
  • Fabric puff paint (optional)
  • Fabric paint (optional)

To start your Poker Night pillow slipcovers you will need to decide which pillows you are going to use. I used my couch throw pillows. In my case I made green felt pillows with colorful playing card suit designs. Lay your green felt fabric on a flat large surface; a dining room table or kitchen counter works well. Trace out your pillow shape on the green poker table top inspired fabric. Leave at least 2 inches around the shape of your pillow. You will need two-piece of this. Leave one piece of fabric whole. Cut the other in half exactly. If your pillow is square this will be simple. If your pillow is rectangle, cut your 2nd piece of fabric in half horizontally equidistant from top to bottom.

Now, I like to decorate the front of my Poker Night pillow cover before I assemble it, but you can assemble it first and then decorate if you would like. Use your white felt to cut out your card shape. This is the basic white shape of all playing cards. Use a pencil or piece of stalk to outline the poker card shape, making about one to three for each pillow. Cut them out with scissors.

Now use black and red felt to cut out the hearts, diamonds, spade, and clubs for each card.

Cut them out.

Next, use fabric glue to attach your playing card cut outs to the pillow cover. You can then glue on the hearts, clubs, spade, and diamonds to the poker themed cards. If you have chosen to assemble your pillow before decorating make sure your fabric glue doesn’t leak through and glue your pillow cover together or you won’t be able to insert the pillow. Once you have attached your felt you can use puff paint to add small details. Make sure all of this dries before you assemble the slipcover.

To assemble the Poker Night pillow cover lay your front decorated panel face up. Outline the edge with no sew or fabric glue. Lay you back panels on top of the front panel. If you are using fabric glue, press the panels together and let this dry. If you are using No Sew then you are ready to iron the pillow together.

Turn your Poker Night slipcover inside out once it has dried or your No Sew has cooled off. You can easily insert you pillow through the center opening in the back. Enjoy your pillowslip cover for years to come.

Here are some tips you can use while making this Poker Night craft project:

Always wash your fabric before making anything out of it. This will allow your fabric to go ahead and shrink before your cut it out. While all fabric won’t shrink. Some will; so don’t risk it.

You can make this Poker Night slip cover out of any fabric you would like. If you use a fabric besides felt you will need to No Sew or fabric glue down the edges of the two back panels where the pillow slips in. Do this while your panels are unassembled. Fold them over with the rough edges towards what will the inside of the panes. Assemble as described before after this point.

Try cutting our your hearts, diamonds, spades, and clubs with some inking sheers. It will create some beautify edges and really make your designs pop.
