Get comfy and crazy with JUMBO floor pillows

As things get colder, our need for comfort gets greater and these crazy huge floor pillows just look so darn comfy. Another great tutorial from Brit + Co., these pillows are great for the indoors and outdoors, the home or the office. We especially love the vibrant fabrics and the mix-and-match effect.

You’ll need:
11 m of fabric (2 m of each type if you’re going for mix-and-match look)
polyester fiberfill for stuffing
fabric scissors
needle and thread
sewing machine


The first thing to do is cut your fabric. Cut 2 squares that are 92 x 92 cm (36 x 36 inches). Then, with a complimentary or matching fabric, cut 4 pieces that are 92 cm x 19 cm (36 x 7 inches). Lay everything out before you get on the sewing machine to make sure all your pieces fit together.
Start with the top of your pillow. Place the two “right” sides of the fabric facing each other and sew with a 2.5cm (1 inch) seam allowance. Repeat on for all 4 side panels.
    Attaching the bottom of the pillow is the same as the top, but you want to leave one side panel open – this is where you’ll put the stuffing in. Remember, your pillow should look like it’s inside out while you sew.
    Sew each of the corners (still inside out) and then turn your pillow case right side out.
    Fill with stuffing and pin with the same 2.5 cm (1 inch) seam allowance.

    Hand-stitch to secure, and you’re done!
