1. Take your quilting square draw a horizontal line to your desired side length (our sides are 24”) on pattern paper.
2. Draw a line perpendicular to the center of your horizontal line.
3. Next, measure your side length from the edge of your horizontal line to your perpendicular line with your quilting square and mark to create a second side of equal length. Repeat this on the other side.
4.Once you’ve drafted an equilateral triangle, cut your pattern out.
5. With your fabric doubled, trace your pattern on, and cut out.
6. Cut a 4”x7” rectangular piece of fabric from each color, this will become your handle.
7. Run a line of Fabri-Tac along the long edges of the rectangle and fold over, run a line of glue down those edges and fold again so the hemmed edges meet in the middle.
8. Use clothes pins to clamp for at least 10 minutes.
9. Unclamp the handle, fold in half and apply Fabri-Tac between the ends. Clamp with clothespin for a few minutes.
10. Sandwich the end of your handle between the fabric of one angle of your triangle with your loop inside. Clamp with clothespins.
11. Run a thick line of Fabri-Tac, with ¼” seam allowance, along the edge of your fabric. Leave a 6” opening across from the corner with your handle.
12. Once the glue is dry, reach into the opening and pull the handle through along with the rest of the fabric. Make sure to push out your corners.
13. Stuff your pillow, avoid overstuffing to maintain the angular shape.
14. Fold in the edges of the opening ½”, apply glue on the inside and pinch closed. Clamp with clothespins.
15. Once the glue is dry, unclamp the clothespins and enjoy!
