buffalo plaid fleece pillow

Bring some cozy comfort to your winter décor with our Buffalo Plaid Fleece Pillow!
Step 1
To start, lay your Buffalo Plaid print fabric on top of your red fabric, with their wrong sides facing each other. Make sure to match up your fabrics’ edges so you don’t waste fabric!
Step 2
Decide what size you want your pillow to be. (You’re stuffing your pillow with fiber fill, not a pillow form, so the sky’s the limit!) Add 6" to this measurement’s length and width to give your pillow a 3" fringe on each side.
Step 3

Once you’ve figured out your measurements, mark them; then pin both layers together so you can cut them both at one time.

TIP: Before cutting, check to make sure the checks in your Buffalo Plaid print are lined up properly so they’ll be straight in your finished pillow.

Step 4
Sew the two pieces together (wrong sides still facing each other) using a 3" seam allowance. Leave 5" open on one side of the pillow so you can stuff it in Step 6.
Step 5

On each side of your pillow, cut the 3" seam allowance into strips of fringe, except for the section of pillow that’s still open. Be careful to cut right up to (but not through) your stitch line.

TIP: You don’t have to measure the fringe’s width. Just follow the Buffalo Plaid print and make each piece of fringe as wide as ½" of one checkered square.

Step 6
Stuff your pillow with fiber fill until it’s as soft or firm as you like.
Step 7
Almost done! Use the zipper foot on your machine to sew up the 5" opening, then finish cutting the fringe for this last section.
