Spoiler: you make them out of dishtowels!

What you'll need:

1. Scissors

2. Measuring tape (ours is a tailor's tape but any kind will do just fine)

3. Heat-n-Bond fabric tape

4. Iron (If you don't have one you can use a hair straightener, but it takes MUCH longer.)

5. Dish towels (At least 2, but we used a 4-pack to make 2 pillows)

Step 1: Make sure your dish towel is at least 2" longer than your pillow on all sides.

This way you'll have plenty of room inside to stuff in your puffy pillow.

Step 2: Iron the tape as close to the edge of your towel as you can.

The tape goes on what will be the outside of your pillowcase.

Follow the directions on the tape packaging. Usually there's a rough side (which will be on the towel) and a side with a sticker (which will be what the iron touches). Repeat for three sides of the pillow, not all four. The un-taped side is where the pillow will go in!
