Please be kind Ive never done a tutorial before and I took lots of pics so I hope that helps.  Now I made this one for a nook color but I also made one for a kindle fire with the same dimensions.  

You will need fabric, thread, polyfill  and something for weight.  I used a bag of rice.

I started by making a 2 templates.  One 11x11x11in equilateral triangle and one that has the triangle at the top and a 4in rectangle attached to it (this is the base).

I then cut out my fabric.  3- 11x11x11in triangles and one other other triangles.  Along with a 6x2in rectangle also a triangle only 4 1/2 in high for the pocket. Take the 6x2 rectangle fold in half press fold each side in half and press in and the fold in half and pin and sew.  Also fold 1/2 in seam on the 1/2 triangle pin and sew. Then fold the rectangle attached to the triangle in half press pin and sew.

Pin the 1/2 triangle wrong side to right side to one of the triangles.  Pin the one triangle to the other triangle and sew.  Thus closing one side the pocket. Repeat the process to the other side to the other triangle.  

Now that you have three triangles attached take the 6in strip fold in half and pin it into a loop to the top of the 3 triangles.  

Fold the three triangles in half pin and sew that side up.  The top of the pillow is now complete.

Keep the the pyramid inside out and pin it to the other triangle base.  Leaving side with rectangle unpinned and sew.

Turn right side out and stuff add weight towards the bottom.

Pin opening closed and hand sew shut.

Then fold in and pin and sew shut one end of rectangle.  Stuff and sew shut the other end.  

C&C welcome

Thanks for sharing. I think that is one of the most amazing projects I've seen on here for awhile. I appreciate that you put a tutorial, and doubt I will find time to make this, but I'm sure others will.

I have a split personality, because you guys crack me up.  AND The best day I ever had was TODAY!

This is genius. I love it. I have to make one of these for my Kindle as I frequently read while I eat.
