Here’s what you’ll need for this project:

Measuring fabric squares | Spoonflower Blog

Start by cutting out your fabric–we’ll need two squares. Mine are 7.5”, but you can use whatever size you want. Spoonflower swatches are 8″ x 8″, so you could use that entire amount for your pillow (minus the tiny bit of selvage).

Zig zag stitch or serge the edges of your Satin | Spoonflower Blog

Zig-zag stitch or serge around the edges of each square. This stabilizes the fabric and will prevent the seams from coming out. Pro tip: If you are using a less slippery fabric like cotton, this step is optional.

Next, pin the squares right sides together and sew with ½” seam allowance, leaving a small gap to turn inside out.

Top Stitching with a 3/8" Seam Allowance. | Spoonflower Blog

Turn your fabric inside out, pin, and sew around the edge again with a ⅜” allowance, still leaving the same opening from before.

Stuff your ring pillow with fiberfill | Spoonflower Blog

Stuff pillow with fiberfill or another filling, as full as you want–we want ours to look nice and plump.

Sewing up the opening of your ring pillow | Spoonflower Blog

Next, sew the opening closed. I’m using my sewing machine, but you could also hand stitch it for a cleaner, more polished look.

Inserting the needle into the ribbon, and threading the needle through the center of the pillow | Spoonflower Blog

Finally, we’re going to add a ribbon to our pillow. This part is simple, but it’s easy to get lost so pay close attention: Grab a needle and thread, and fold a length of ribbon in half. We’re using 12″ inches for our pillow, but you can adjust your length based on the size of your pillow. Cut the ribbon and thread your needle, and insert the needle into the center of the ribbon. Now, insert the needle into the top of the pillow in the center. Pull the thread through until the ribbon rests in the center of the pillow.

Insert the needle back into the pillow from the bottom and up through the front, very close to your first stitch.

The ovals are randomly black and dark orange. In the middle third on the right-hand side of the image, four rolls of the same wallpaper design in different colorways are laid lengthwise on top of the black-and-dark-orange panel. Only about a fourth of the rolls are shown. The rolls of wallpaper from top to bottom feature green-and-blue ovals on a cream background, black-and-white ovals on a cream background, orange-and-gray ovals on a cream background and kelly-green-and-dark-green ovals on a cream background.
