Step 1: The history
Historically in Europe it would have been made from wool or if your were fabulously wealthy linen, cotton or even silk. This may apply in Asia, I do not know.
Many argue that the lozenge or diamond pattern quilting is not historically accurate, but I'm not so sure, I've seen a chess piece from the Isle of Lewis that clearly depict a diamond pattern and the pieces carved there demonstrate a high degree of accuracy. Additionally the Bayeux Tapestry show something that may be diamond pattern, the diamond pattern is logical since it holds the batting in place very well.
Regardless of historical influence, diamond pattern sewn padded material is readily available at most fabric stores and is acceptable to average observer as not dispelling the illusion of authenticity.
If you must be historically accurate this is not the project for you, I have no primary evidence but would be happy to hear from someone who does.
Step 2: Disclaimer and Advice
IF YOU ARE USING SOMEONE ELSES SEWING MACHINE MAKE SURE YOU ASK PERMISSION TO INCLUDE YOUR PARENTS IF APPLICABLE.
ON MY FIRST SEWING PROJECT I SEWED MY THUMB TO A PIECE OF LEATHER WITH MY MOTHERS UPOSTERY MACHINE, I SCREWED UP THE MACHINES TIMING AND HAD TO PICK THE STICHES OUT OF MY THUMB ALONG WITH A BROKEN NEEDLE. IT REALLY HURT A LOT AND TOOK ME FIFTEEN YEARS TO OVERCOME MY FEAR AND MEMORIES.
GET LESSONS, GET HELP DON'T GET HURT.
