Here’s the second prop I made for my friend who practices zazen (zen meditation). Approx 75×75 cm, about 7 cm tall. It has an invisible zipper on the side. There is an inner pillow that contains the synthetic filling, but you need to remove the tufts in order to take it out. I really enjoyed making the tufts and I think I’ll make a nice tufty pillow for myself some time :-)
Other possible uses for this type of project: floor pillows, throw pillows, chair or bench cushions.
I made the whole thing using fabric and zipper from my stash. I had to purchase the filling though.
