You will usually want to pick an odd number of pillows somewhere around three and seven for a natural asymmetrical look. If you're a balance freak like I am you may not be able to help the impulse to place an even number or either side, this is OK but takes a little from the "chic" factor. Also, opting of a smaller number of larger pillows rather than a ton of small ones provides a much cleaner look, but for certain motifs and backdrops you may want a really full appearance where the smaller pillows will be ideal.
Pillows are items generally used to support and cushion a part of the body. They consist of an outer case that contains some kind of stuffing. Some may be stuffed with feathers, but these are costly pillows and not suitable for the many people who are allergic to feathers. Hence a polyester stuffing is available as an alternative, or even polystyrene beads.
Making throw pillows is an easy, yet enjoyable procedure, and after you've learned the running stitch and the backstitch, they are a breeze to work out. There are two different ways to do this; with a pillow form and with fiberfill stuffing. Either way is fine, it's just a matter of how you want to do it and how you feel most comfortable. First, to be able to choose what kind you want to make, you will want to know what a pillow form and fiberfill are, and the pros and cons between the two. First off, we have a pillow form. Basically a pillow form is a non decorative, rather ugly pillow that is stuffed inside of your fabric. It helps your pillow keep it's form, plus they're easy to use, especially for a beginner. The cons are that they can be rather expensive if you don't keep an eye out for sales and good deals.
