Lay out your fabric on a flat surface. Using a ruler or measuring tape, draw two squares that are the size you ultimately want PLUS an extra 1 - 1/2 inches. Carefully cut them out with your scissors and lay them on top of each other with the outsides facing in. (You are going to sew your pillow inside-out and then reverse it to hide the stitching.) Pin the two pieces of fabric together by inserting a pin about every 2-3 inches.
Insert your stuffing or pillow form into the pillowcase, making sure to push it all the way into the corners. Thread your needle again and made a knot. To make a hidden stitch, hold the pillow so that the opening runs lengthwise, almost like an open envelope. There will be a flap of fabric on the top and bottom of the opening created from the ironing. Make a stitch along the crease of the top flap on the far right side of the opening. Pull the thread all the way through and then make a similar-length stitch along the crease of the bottom flap on the far right side (your stitches should line up with each other across the opening). Pull your thread tight and the two sides of the opening will be pulled together. Start your next stitch on the top side just to the left of where your last stitch ended and repeat the process. Eventually, you will have closed the entire opening. Make a final knot and cut off the remaining thread.
Sophisticated styles are used with floral designs and tassels. These pillows can give a finishing touch to the interiors of a room. Couch pillows are covered with fabric matching to those of the fabric used for curtains and window dressing. Invisible zip closures are elegantly incorporated while making these pillows. Couch pillows are ideal gifts for housewarming parties.
