Materials you will need:

  • paper template
  • stuffing of your choice (mine was fiberglass)
  • thread (matching to the color of the fabric) & needle
  • scissors
  • sewing machine

Instructions
  1. Create a round template by folding the piece of paper in half and cutting out a half circle (my circle has a diameter of 23 cm).

2. Unfold the template and pin it to the fabric.

3. Cut around the template, leaving 1 cm seam allowance.

4. Pin the template to the fabric again and repeat step 3. You should have two equally sized circles.

5. Unrepin the template. Lay circles on top of each other and pin them together.

6. Sew around the edges with 1 cm seam allowance, leaving an opening of 3-5 cm.

7. Clip seam allowance. Be careful; you don’t want to cut the seams. This will make the pillow look better.
