Count - you will have to decide how many pillows you actually need for your home. Usually, medium sized sofa requires between three and five cushions on it, chairs needs one pillow per a chair, and for a bed you probably will need two pillows.
There are couch pillows that are available at retail outlets. Advantage of buying these pillows is that they are generally priced reasonably. Normally, the stitching stays intact even after rough use as machines are used in factories to stitch the seams.
When you begin sewing, remember to position your stitches about a half inch from the edge of the fabric. When you reach the end of a length of thread, make the smallest stitch you can and pass your needle through the loop before pulling the thread all the way through. Sew three sides of your pillow all the way, but only sew 2-3 inches on each end of the fourth side. (You will probably need to re-thread your needle multiple times). This will leave you an opening to insert the pillow form or stuffing. Remove the pins. Snip off a little of each corner of your pillowcase, being careful not to cut your stitches, so that the fabric won‘t bunch up when you turn it inside out.
