We use pretty cotton fabrics, a sewing machine and thread and a bunch of old pillows.

1. Start by cutting the fabrics. We make the cushions on the same principle as a pillowcase. The front is a square and the middle bit in the image. The side panels are about 2/3 as wide as the front piece and we have sewn a hem in each outer edge.

2. Place your front piece with the right side up, then back pieces with right side down towards the front, as shown. The rough edges of the back pieces should be in line with the front piece edges. They hemmed edges will then be overlapping eachother and together make the back cover. Sew a seam around the whole cover!

Turn the pillow cover inside out and tuck an old pillow in it as stuffing. Done!
