- a piece of fabric (dimmensions differ depending on how big you want your pillow to be. I used half a meter of fabric and folded it in two to make my small-medium cloud pillows)
- a pair of scissors
- needle and thread
- your sewing machine (however if you have the patience and don't have the machine, you can make it by hand)
- measuring tape
- a pencil, or marker, or chalk, whatever you feel comfortable with
- pillow stuffing
You can buy all these (except for the sewing machine) at a local dry goods store.
Take your piece of fabric and fold it in two. Draw a cloud with the pencil, or marker or chalk, whatever you have near you.
Use the scissors to cut along the trace you've made leaving about 1 cm distance between the pencil mark and your cut.
Sew the two pieces of fabric together with your sewing machine (choose the basic stitch). Follow the trace you've made with the pencil, or the chalk. Don't forget to leave a space of around 10 cm or less. Do not sew that space because it will help you turn your pillow around and put the stuffing inside
To prevent the fabric from clamping, one should relieve the tension by cutting into that 1 cm space you left when you cut the shape of the cloud. Cut into it, without penetrating the seam.
Using the 10 cm space you left turn your fabric inside out. It should look like this (the seam is not visible):
It's time to put the stuffing in. I used about 200 grams of stuffing for a medium cloud-pillow but it depends how stiff you want your pillow to be. You will use the 10 cm space to fill your pillow with stuffing.
When you're through with the stuffing, sew the 10 cm space as close to the edge of the fabric as you can.
Here are my cloud-pillows:
