Create the pattern for your pillow. Decide on the size of it: If you make a curved seat cushion for a chair, measure the size of the seat area. Sketch a circle on the paper using a compass or string and pen. Draw the pattern on the fabric. Repeat this to have two circles, one for the back and one for the front. Cut out two circular shapes, and make sure to leave an extra 1½-inch replacement for seams around the edges. Pin the two parts together, do not straighten one another, to ensure that the fabric does not slip out of place. Gently sew around the edges of your pillow, extend the 1½-inch seam allowance and keep turning to maintain a consistent circular shape.
Leaves a small opening at one end of the pillow for stuffing purposes. Back-sew along both sides of the seam to keep the stitches from tearing up. Turn the cushion straight side out. Fill your new pillow with the filling until it is as thick as you want. Press the fill at the edges first so that it is evenly filled. Fold the remaining edges of the pillow inward and pin along the curve to maintain even the circular shape of the pillow. Carefully sew along the edge by hand to finish your pillow. Place the cushion cover top and your side fabric face straight and needle a 1.2 cm (1/2 inch) seam around.
Sew material together. Sew the sides together where they meet up with a 1.2 cm (1/2 inch) seam. Align your cushion cover with the top, face to face. Pin the fabric side to the cushion cover bottom begins at the lower left corner, up and around the shaped upper edge and back down to the right. Leaves the lower edge open. Sew a 1.2 cm (1/2 inch) seam where you have attached. Cut Velcro straps to fit along the pillow opening. Sew a half of the tape to the side fabric and a half to the lower cover. Turn your lock right side out. Put your cover over your pillow and you’re ready to use it.
