  • Backing fabric
  • Ruler
  • Scissors or rotary cutter and a cutting mat
  • Needle and thread
  • Fabric pins
  • Sewing machine


Step 1

Cut your lining fabric into an 11-inch square, then fold over the edges by ½ inch, and press nicely. Fold the corners toward the middle to form a smaller square, then give it a good press, cut a small piece of fabric with a 4⅞ inch size, and insert it into the middle of the square before folding in the corners toward the middle again. Topstitch around the four corners as well as the center to hold them in place, then place the triangle pieces on each side alternating the colors, and turn the edges over before securing with a pin as shown in the video. Sew around the folded edges, then trim off the excess fabric, and cut the backing fabric at about 6×12 inches.

Step 2

Fold the backing fabric in half with its right sides facing and give it a press, then lay it underneath the patchwork making sure that the latter has its wrong side facing up, and sew around the edges with a ¼-inch seam allowance making sure to leave a gap for turning. Once done sewing, then trim off the corners, and turn the piece right side out. Poke the corners nicely, then fill it with any filling or stuffing of choice, tuck the seams nicely, and sew it close. You can add the button at the center and you’re done!
