How to Make a Pillow

Time Required: 1 to 2 hours

Things You Will Need

  1. Fabric
  2. Thread matching to your fabric
  3. Pillow Form
  4. Scissors
  5. Sewing Needle
  6. Iron
  7. Sewing Machine


  1. First measure the dimensions of the pillow form.

  2. Mark the measured dimension on two pieces of fabric and add a one and a half-inch seam allowance on all sides. Cut out these two pieces of fabric.

  3. With the right sides of the two pieces together, place them on top of each other. Now pin the three sides of the fabric pieces together and then sew along the edges of the pinned sides, leaving a half-inch seam allowance. Make sure you leave one side of the fabric open to insert the pillow form.

  4. Flip the fabric right side out and then iron it flat.

  5. Insert the pillow form and then hand stitch the opening using needle and thread. Try to use smaller less noticeable stitches.

Your pillow is ready. Now you can adorn your sofa, chairs, floor or bed with your own handmade pillow.
