Cut the shape of your desired pillow (oval, circle, square, rectangle) x 2—if you are using contrast fabrics, pick one to be the backing.
STEP 1 Divide the front of the pillow into 8 pieces and cut until you have a beach ball effect.
STEP 2 Sew pieces together at 1/4″ (0.6 cm) seam allowance. If you prefer, you can use contrast fabric and alternate fabrics as you are sewing.
STEP 3 With right sides together, pin the back piece to the front piece and sew around at 5/8″ (1.6 cm) seam allowance. Make sure to leave a small opening for the stuffing.
STEP 4 Use the stuffing to fill the pillow.
STEP 5 Use the hand sewing needle to sew up the opening.
STEP 6 Place the button in the center of the pillow and use hand sewing needle to sew through all layers.
