If you're going for angular square or rectangle pillows you want them to be in the 16 - 26 inch range, no bigger but in a few cases they may be smaller. These pillows generally need to be large enough to full showcase a few passes of a given patter or even a large block of solid color. Rectangular pillows are really nice because the oblong shape is usually unexpected and adds a bit of extra flair. In most cases you will not be opting for a circular pillow, and unless you are an experienced designer or just know that you've got the stuff you should be cautious when approaching your sofa with spherical cushions. Round pillows tend to not blend well with the overall angels of your furniture, unless of course you a have very unique piece such as a cylinder bed or circular patterns in your rooms decor.
The back layer of pillows should be a bit larger than the rest. You want to have either three or five pillows for this back row depending on how large the bed is and the size of the pillows. Stand them up on the edges and lean them against the headboard.
The decorative needlework that embellishes many of the most beautiful accent cushions is often created by cross-stitch or crewelwork that is stitched entirely by hand.
Before you can buy your fabric and start sewing, you need to determine what size your pillows will be. If you already have some throw pillows in your home, measure them to see how large they are and then decide if you want your homemade ones to be bigger or smaller. If you will be placing your pillows on a couch or chair, take into consideration the height of the back and how much space you want the pillows to take up.
You don't want to have too many different patterns in the pillows, maybe some with a pattern and some that are plain but have a color that pick up the pattern. You can use interesting fabrics like silks, brocades and velvets as well as interesting accents on the pillows such as tufting, fringe and embellishments. What you choose really depends on your bedroom design.
