I saw this video on how to make this cute pillow and it came with patterns. Go to theDIYdish.com Season 4 Episode 2. I'm not sure what type of material they used but I used polar fleece, soooo soft and the ends won't fray. I just cut the flower shapes and (2) pieces 18 x 18 square, sewed the square leaving an opening and stuffed it. Hand sewed it closed and sewed the flowers on using the same technique the ladies did on the video. This project took about an hour to create, cutting the flowers was the longest part. I think it will look lovely on my swing. Did I mention it's soft?
