Before you buy your fabric, you‘ll need to determine how much you need. Add 1 - 1/2 inches to the pillow size you decided on so that you‘ll have room for sewing the pieces together. For example, if you are making an 18 inch by 18 inch pillow, you should buy enough fabric to have two squares that are at least 19 inches by 19 inches. Explain your project and measurements to the salesperson at the fabric store and they will be able to cut you the amount of fabric you need.
The decorative pillows are like jewels in your house. Your decoration will highlight the sharp accents and colors. The textures of the distinct elements make your whole place very inviting and comfortable. The textured pillows with earth colors can enhance the looks of your sofa. Using beads and satin give excitement to your traditional pieces. You are giving your visitors what it is like to be hospitable by giving them the welcoming beauty of your home decorations.
Now you could make more layers, but three layers is pretty standard you don‘t want to many pillows or your whole bed is just going to be layers of pillows. For the last layer I like to use a bolster pillow - one of those long rounded tubular pillows that has a fancy fringe or tassel on the end. If you don’t want to do this just use some smaller pillows for the front. These probably wouldn’t be bed pillows but little decorative pillows that are smaller than your second row pillows and simply place those leaning against the second row pillows on their edges.
