First decide what size pillows you want to make and what kinds of fabric. We are making two-20x28" pillows (standard size pillows), 1- 18x18" pillow, and a 5x12" bolster. Lauren picked out two really cute patterns to coordinate with her bedding.
To make a regular pillow with no edging, measure the fabric's width and length. Make sure to not include edging on fabric. Straighten all the pieces and cut the fabric the size of the pillow form. I usually make all my pillows 1" smaller than the forms so that they are very full.
Pin fabric together, with fronts facing each other. Lauren likes to put a lot of pins in her fabric, I guess she is afraid that it will fly apart.
Sew fabric together. Start in the middle of one side and end leaving a space to put the pillow form inside the pillow. Make sure to leave a large enough space.
Pin and hand sew the remaining space.
I think she did a great job. She also made three other pillows for her bed. (I'll post instructions on how to make a simple bolster at a later date.)
