Instructions

  1. 1

    Fold a piece of paper to make a pattern for your ring cushion. A square or rectangular pattern that is approximately 8 inches would be appropriate, as ring cushions tend to be small. You can keep this pattern to make future pillows.

  2. 2

    Pin the pattern to the fabric. Use scissors to cut out two pieces of fabric.

  3. 3

    Thread a needle. Tie a knot in the thread. Sew two buttons onto one of the fabric squares. Place the buttons so that they are evenly spaced. Make sure that the buttons are sewn securely to the fabric. Tie knots in the thread.

  4. 4

    Put the two squares of fabric together with the right sides of the fabric turned toward each other. Pin the squares together.

  5. 5

    Sew the two squares together using a straight stitch along the edge. Continue sewing until you have attached three sides. Sew about half of the fourth side. Remove the pins.

  6. 6

    Turn the cushion right-side out. Stuff it with fiberfill or another stuffing. You can even use lavender or another potpourri blend to make a fragrant ring pillow.

  7. 7

    Turn the open edges of the fabric inside the cushion. Pin the opening closed. Sew the opening shut using small, neat stitches. Tie a secure knot. Cut the thread very close to the knot.

  8. 8

    Cut two pieces of ribbon to lengths of approximately 10 inches. Wrap each ribbon underneath a button. Adjust the tails of each ribbon to make them all the same length. Tie the ribbons in knots under the buttons.
