Insert your stuffing or pillow form into the pillowcase, making sure to push it all the way into the corners. Thread your needle again and made a knot. To make a hidden stitch, hold the pillow so that the opening runs lengthwise, almost like an open envelope. There will be a flap of fabric on the top and bottom of the opening created from the ironing. Make a stitch along the crease of the top flap on the far right side of the opening. Pull the thread all the way through and then make a similar-length stitch along the crease of the bottom flap on the far right side (your stitches should line up with each other across the opening). Pull your thread tight and the two sides of the opening will be pulled together. Start your next stitch on the top side just to the left of where your last stitch ended and repeat the process. Eventually, you will have closed the entire opening. Make a final knot and cut off the remaining thread.
It is important that you pick the best style of pillow for the room you are decorating. If you have a sleek and modern couch, don’t match it with a decorative pillow covered in fringe. The pillows shouldn’t be bland, either. Colors and patterns that either blend with the furniture or stand out in contrast are the better choices. Don't be afraid of pattern and texture! Using designer pillows with pictures and patterns can be an excellent way to add some fun and interest to your room. But be careful not to go overboard with the patterned pillows. Too many fabrics and colors can come across as being too busy.
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.
