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.
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.
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.
