Step 1: Supplies

For this pillow you are going to need:
- Parchment paper for your pattern
- Tape measure
- Ruler
- Paper and fabric scissors/ rotary cutter
- Rotary mat
- Iron
- Pins
- Seam ripper
- Wax ( for marking your fabric)
- Thread
- Poly Stuffing

Step 2: Making the pattern

To make the pattern take parchment paper and roll it out onto a flat surface. Measure out a square whatever size you want your pillow and add 1/2 " for seam allowance. Using the ruler connect the points. Cut out your pattern with paper scissors.( Don't use the scissors that you cut your fabric with, because the paper will make them dull)

Step 3: Fabric

For this pillow, I made it with 2 different patterns, soild and print. To save time I ironed out the fabric and pined them, with right sides together, so that they were even. Then I pined my pattern on. Since I didn't add 1/2" to the pattern, I just alihned it on the fabric 1/2" away from the edges.

Step 4: Cut !

Now you are ready to cut the fabric. Keep the pattern pined to it to make sure that you are cutting straight.

Step 5: Sew time :)

Okay, now that you have cut out your pillow, walk over to the machine. You're going to sew all 4 sides with 1/2" seams , stopping about halfway on the 4th side.

Step 6: The corners

Now you should have a square. Taking your scissors, you are going to cut of the edge of the square. Don't cut too close so that your seams come undone, you're just cutting the tip.
