  1. Cut two 18” x 18” squares for the pillow
  2. Make nine large yo-yo’s with the Clover Yo Yo Maker Tool.


  1. Set one piece aside and with the other, find the center of the pillow. With the ruler, draw a line vertically and horizontally on the pillow top with disappearing ink. Draw another line four inches from the center line on both sides of the horizontal line as well as the vertical line. At this point there should be a grid with nine intersections.


  1. Using pins, secure each of the yo yo’s to a intersection on the pillow top. With your sewing machine, top stitch on the grid lines in both directions. Go over the lines twice if desired.

  1. Make 4 large pom poms using the Clover Pom Pom Maker Tool. Leave long ties on the pom poms. Tie a knot just past the pom pom along the long ties. This knot will prevent the pom pom from pulling out when finished.


  1. Pin a pom pom to each corner of the pillow so the knot is just last the pins. When sewing in step 8. You’ll want to sew between the pom pom and the knot, so pin accordingly.


  1. With right sides facing, pin the front of the pillow to the back. Leave an opening of approximately six inches for turning. Sew around the outer edges using a 1/4” seam allowance.


  1. Turn and fill with fiberfill or pillow insert. Handsticth the opening closed.
