Sewing machine or kit
Batting or pillow
To make one, cut two squares in desired dimensions from a patterned tablecloth, adding 1/2 inch to each side.
Right sides facing, stitch pieces together with a 1/2-inch seam allowance.
Turn right side out, then stuff (if using batting pull it into small pieces). Stitch opening closed.
