I used fabric sample squares (17 3/4"x 17 3/4") and a 16" x 16" polyester pillow form for the "stuffing".
I sewed the front and back together with a 1/4" seam, only leaving one side open so I could put the "stuffing" inside.

After the "stuffing" was inside, I sewed the remaining edge using the 1/4 seam. You could also put a zipper in if you were using machine washable fabric. The samples I bought were not machine washable, so I just skipped that step.
The sample fabric squares were only $2 each at Joann's Fabric, and the "stuffing" was about $6 each. I already had the thread. So all in all, these pillows were only about $10 each and only took about 30 minutes to make. Talk about a steal!
