You`ll also need to buy something to "stuff" your new pillows. You can either use batting, which is loose stuffing, or a pre-made pillow form insert. Batting is cheaper and can be divided up for multiple projects, but pillow forms hold their shape better. You might want to look at any throw pillows you currently own and see which type of stuffing they use to make your decision. If you decide to use a pillow form, make sure to buy one that is a few inches larger than the size pillow you`ll be making. This will ensure that your pillow ends up fluffy and not flat.
They may often have different designs too. Maybe a wave-like design, or it can have a pocket where your head sits. Material is also another variable. I`ve seen, experimented with, and have reviewed pillows of all different materials. Fiber filled pillows, water based pillows, foam pillows, buckwheat pillows, etc... I tend to like fiber filled pillows that are standard firmness, not too hard and not too soft. This allows for good support and a comfortable night`s sleep. Also, synthetic fibers are often hypoallergenic and don`t hold dust mites like a feather pillow may. I tend to find memory foam to be slightly too hard for many, and I don`t want to play around and have to adjust my pillow like you sometimes have to with a water based pillow. But again, you may need to try some different options to see what you like best.
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.
