Assembly

  • Put two panels together right sides together, and sew them to each other. When you’re almost done, stuff pillow with stuffing and then finish closing up. If you are using a pillow form instead of stuffing, you can sew up the sides and the bottom, place the pillow form inside the pillowcase, and finishing by sewing up the top.
