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 key to the plumping is that you have to set up the pillows in layers. You can't lay them down flat like you do when you‘re sleeping or you‘ll just end up with a big pile of pillows! You have to arrange them standing up on their edges and in rows.
Visit a local fabric store to purchase the supplies you'll need to make your decorative pillows. If there isn‘t one nearby, you can also find lots of fabric and supplies online. Or, you may have an existing item of clothing or other fabric in your home that you want to recycle for this project.
