Pillow for Syd

This is one of those quick pillows that you make with 5 squares of fabric.  Put your backing fabric right side up (first picture is back).  And then you fold the other 4 pieces in half, either straight or on the bias (wrong sides together).  This pillow has them folded on the bias.
 Then you lay each folded fabric piece, one at a time, on one side of the backing, going around on all 4 sides.  The first fabric will need 1/2 folded back so the 4th fabric can lay down and then put the 1st fabric back as it was, like a pinwheel.  Pin and sew all the way around the square.  Turn right side out and insert the pillow.  Use or make 2 buttons to coordinate and then stitch the back button to the front button through the pillow, catching all 4 fabrics on the front, and cinch tight and knot.
Heike from Flensburg taught me how to do this!
Lots of fun!
