Hi everyone!!  I'm new!!  I was just wondering if anyone had any ideas on some big pillows I could make.  Like cushions really.  I'm SLOWLY redoing my room in dark purples and blues and reds and pinks.. ok so the list goes on and on... and I want to have an area for some big cushions that I could sit on and read or watch tv or something... THANKS!!

it's quite easy to make any kind of cushions. just go out and buy some fabric that you like, or go to a thrift store and get a sheet or something you like.. go to a craft store and invest in some batting (or you can even buy sheets of thick foam which might be better for what you're talking about) and cover them! it's fairly easy to sew cushions by hand but if you have a sewing machine that's even better! sorry if you were looking for more "artistic ideas" but i just figured you just wanted to know how to make a cushion Tongue

You could make no-sew fleece pillows.  Grab some fleece, cut two matching pieces out, cut a fringe around both, and tie the fringe on one piece to the fringe on the other.  Stuff it, tie it off, and voila!

Assuming that makes sense.  I bet I could find instructions somewhere on craftster, as just about everything's here.

Like this, only with cooler fleece.  Smiley  Sorry, forgot to mention the cut-the-corners out thing.  However, I think most people could figure that out once they realized they weren't sure how to turn the corners into fringe.

Try this pattern from Vogue-7567-it's for floor pillows. That is, if you were wanting to make something other than fleece-I got it when they were 75% off at Joann's and it was around $5 if I remember correctly!

okay... so a bit wacky, but.. i took a huge 2x size thermal shirt and stuffed it with A LOT of stuffing. i've had it for about 3 years now so it is beginning to become a bit mishapen. but its fun and unexected and the arms are good for reading

Keep it loose, keep it tight.

Thanks ya'll that helps.  And my mom makes "no-sew" blankets like that.  I do like that idea!  I appreciate all the responses!!
