Floor pillows can be any size and can be used to prop oneself up against a wall or piece of furniture, or as sleeping beds for dogs and cats.
A floor pillow can be made out of any type of fabric, but you should choose a fabric that is thicker so that the pillow lasts longer. Thicker fabric is essential if you have animals that might want to play tug with you and the floor pillow.

Step 1

Cut two pieces of material the exact same size. Make the pieces an inch larger than the finished product will be. Fold the edges over by 1/2 inch and pin the edges to hold them in place.

Step 2

Iron both pieces of material, especially the edges, so they stay flat. Sew 1/4 inch away from the new edge. Place the two pieces of material together, right side in. Sew three sides of the two pieces of material together. You should now have a large pocket.

Step 3

Measure the length of the fourth side. Divide the number by three. The result is how many inches in from each side you will sew, leaving an opening in the middle of the fourth side. If you have a 12-inch pillow, you will sew 4 inches in from the left, then sew 4 inches in from the right.

Step 4

Turn the pillow right side out. Wash the material and dry it, according to the washing instructions for the type of material you chose. Once dry, iron the fabric.

Step 5

Stuff the pillow with the pillow stuffing. Fold the edges of the opening in so they are even with the sewn edges. With a needle and thread, sew the opening closed with overhand stitches. Keep the stitches as close to the edge as possible, so they are less noticeable.
