How To Make a Giant Cozy Corner Pillow - DIY Pillows

My son recently created what he calls a “cozy corner” in his bedroom. He has a lot of blankets and sleeping bags in his “cozy corner” but it still isn’t soft enough. With just a few items and about 20 minutes, I made a soft, pillowy base for his cozy corner.  I used four separate pillow covers and sewed them together to make one giant soft pillow. I stuffed them with pillows of the same size and the Giant “Cozy Corner” Pillow was ready to go!

Assemble the Giant Pillow Cover

First, sew two pillow covers together, remembering to keep the zippers to the outside so they can be opened to put the pillows inside.

Next, repeat the process with the other two pillow covers, again being careful to keep the zippered ends to the outside edges.

Finally, pin the two pieces together for sewing using straight pins. Make sure you are pinning the pillow covers with the seam sides of both facing up. Sew the two pieces together to make the completed giant pillow cover.

When finished you will have four pillow covers sewed together with two zippers on one end and two zippers on the other. The pillow cover is now complete and ready to be “stuffed”.

Stuff the Pillow Covers

Spread out the completed pillow covers with seams facing down and stuff each individual cover with a pillow.

You can either lay the pillow flat as I did above, or prop it up against the wall as a couch.

I opted to lay the pillow flat. After spreading it out, I dressed it up with my son’s other blankets, sleeping bags, pillows and stuffed animals.
