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.
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.
You can also choose the reversible designs to make your decorative pillows more exciting. There are so many stores that offer home decors. The reversible designs are those that have two fabrics in one pillow cover - one on the front and one on the back. Most of the time, the prints are mixed from the coordinating stripe and solid colors. You can also try botanical pattern for day one and a stripe on the following day.
Perhaps you want to design a room in your house to feel like a beach retreat, even though you live nowhere near the ocean. Maybe you just purchased a beach house and are looking forward to decorating it with nautical home accessories. Adding seaside pillows to this room will add a sense of beauty and tranquility and will compete your design.
If this is your first time sewing, you'll also need to buy some basic supplies. First, check around your house to see if you already have some of them. You'll need a good pair of scissors, pins, a needle and thread that matches your fabric. (If you plan to use scissors you already own, make sure they are sharp enough to cut fabric.) You may have an old sewing kit that you got from a hotel which you can use, as long as you haven't previously used a lot of the thread in the color you‘ll need.
