Most quality pillows are two separate pieces, the cover and the actual pillow. A removable cover is quite handy when it comes time to clean the pillow, and can be reused after years of wear have flattened the original interior pillow. Also note that good fill materials should flatten easily but not permanently. You can test this by giving a little punch to the center of the pillow, if the pillow does not budge then it is made of cheap synthetics that will stay flat forever once they do get a little wear. If the pillow takes a moment but eventually gets it's swagger back this is a good indicator that the pillow can be easily fluffed and will spring back to life over years of usage. Fill materials usually range from synthetic polyester to full on goose down and everything in-between. Down pillows are excellent, but if you are purchasing one be sure to inspect the insulation quality of the feathers. Feather tips sticking out of the pillow are a good indicator of expensive materials coupled with shady craftsmanship (not to mention getting poked).

So now that we've considered the different types of stuffing for pillows, let's get down to business and do the actual preparation and sewing part. For preparation, let's collect the materials first. Since the pillow is such a simple project, not many materials are required. Start off with the fabric for the pillow, and your choice of a form or fiberfill.

Victorian design styles are often used by people who love the feel of the nineteenth century and are yet implemented with modern conveniences. Common woods often used in cabinets are oak, cherry or sometimes mahogany and traditional colors are preferred. For such designs, contemporary hardware can work but should have a vintage feel for example iron or antique pseudo pewter. On the other hand, Southern and ocean-side area styles favor stucco as it endures well. This design style will typically have accented windows like the bay type windows or will have narrow, long encased or boxed windows. Often the doors are accented with shutters of wood or slate and painted over with vibrant colors. Clay pots and ceramic statues would complement the ceramic tile flooring, which is often seen in Mediterranean design. This design style will often have big open living areas that make good use of the outside weather and the use of brighter colors in fabrics like drapes would accentuate the design.
