How to Make a Polar Fleece Pillow

Polar fleece pillows are soft and warm. One drawback of these pillows is their price, as they can be expensive. So why not make your own? They can be customized depending on the fabric you choose and make great gifts. Consider solid polar fleece that coordinates with your room, or print polar fleece depicting something you love or with a holiday theme.

Things You'll Need:

    * Polar fleece fabric
    * Cotton stuffing
    * Sewing machine
    * Thread
    * Scissors
    * Ruler

1.  Measure and cut out two identical pieces of polar fleece fabric that are 20 inches by 20 inches. This will make a 14-inch by 14-inch pillow.

2.  Lay the pieces of polar fleece directly on top of each other. Line up the edges perfectly. Take your ruler and place it along the bottom edge or corner of the fabric. Measure a 3-inch by 3-inch square from the corner and cut it out. Repeat on all four corners so you are left with four missing corners. Measure out 1 1/2-inch segments and cut them up about 3 inches inward on the fabric. Repeat all the way around the square so you have several 1 1/2-inch sections of fringe-like fabric edges.

3.  Take one of these fringe-like chunks and tie the bottom and top pieces together in a double knot. Repeat almost all the way around the square, leave three to five sections untied. Fill the center of the pillow with cotton stuffing. Stuff to desired fullness. Tie the remaining segments with double knots.

4.  Measure and cut out two identical pieces of fabric that are 15 inches by 15 inches. This will make a 14-inch by 14-inch pillow.

5.  Lay the two pieces of polar fleece fabric on top of each other, wrong side of the farbic outward. Line up all edges. Pin the edges of the fabric together about 1/2-inch inward. Thread your sewing machine with a corresponding color of cotton thread.

6. Sew the edges of the pillow with a simple stitch on your sewing machine. Sew three and a half sides, leaving one small section still open. Carefully flip the fabric inside out so the correct side of the fabric now shows. Fill the pillow with cotton stuffing to desired fullness. Sew the remaining open section by hand with a needle and thread.
