Is your sofa lacking pizazz? Is your seating area boring? Is that armchair uncomfortably bare? Then this Instructable is for you!

Throw pillows are great addition to any piece of furniture. And they're so easy to make!

Sewing machine
Needle and thread
Fabric (any size, any shape, any kind)
Trim (optional)
Fluff or stuffing or filling, whatever suits your fancy. (the pillows featured here were filled with beanbag Styrofoam, but you can use anything)
Dressmaker pins (any basic sewing pins)

Step 1: Cut Fabric

You can use anything, and I mean ANYTHING. the body of a t-shirt, an old tablecloth, any scraps of fabric you have. I used some scraps I had left over from making some wall hangings.

Cut two squares of the same size. Any size you would like, just be sure you have enough material to make two pieces.

you could even cut a different shape than a square. star-shaped, triangle, cloud, ... blob? anything you'd like! use your imagination. I like to use shapes with straight edges because they're much easier to sew.

Great instructions! Thank you!
I've got two of these chairs. Do you know what the style of the chair is called?
I LOVE that chair! You don't have an Instructable for that, do you?
Nice! I could always use more pillows.<br />
couldn't we all? I mean really. Couldn't. We. All?<br /> <br /> <br />
