Update: Triangle Pillow Tutorial Translation

    A seriously BIG thank you to Olga who translated Wednesday's triangle floor pillow tutorial!
    She doesn't have a blog or else I'd link to it but she translated the WHOLE thing from Russian. Olga, you are great;)

    I really love these and am thinking about trying them myself. They look easier than the traditional round beanbag pillows. I got out my old beanbags from the basement to put in the new kids room and they were unfortunately ruined. These seem really simple but different!

    Here's the tutorial in English:

    It says something like this:
    Would you like to suggest your guests to relax on original seats? Seating on those pads is unusually comfortable cause polyester inside follow shape of your body.
    You need:
    -180 x 90 cm upholstery fabric with small narrow stripes for the smaller pillows
    - 120 x 240cm upholstery fabrics with wide strips for bigger pillows
    -tailor's chalk
    -long ruler
    -granular polystyrene filling for floor pillow
    -polyester thread to match
    -silk thread to match
    How to sew pillows?

    The size of pillows on one side: large - 117cm, small - 87 cm
    1. Both pillows make in the same way. Fold the fabric on width in half, and press with your finger fold line. With tailor's chalk mark mark the center of the long edge.
    2. Lay out the fabric on smooth and flat surface. Fold
    both short edges of rectangle  toward the center,  and mark with chalk on the opposite side of the longitudinal point of the fold.

    3. Following the pattern, mark the edges of the fabric on the notation A, A1, Б, Б1,B, B1 and B2 which will guide you while sewing the seams
    .4. Fold the fabric with right sides facing each other, so that edges A and A1 be in the same line. With polyester thread sew straight line leaving 1.5cm for seam.(This means to sew edges A and A1 together) Sew that line one more time and then do zig-zag so that fabric doesn't fray. it will strengthen the joints, so they do not burst during use of a pillow.
    5. Do the same (sew double straight line and zig-zag  ) with segments(edges) Б and Б1. Then shift a bit, opened part of rectangle so that edge B and edges B1 and B2 be in same line (B1 over first half of edge B, and B2 over second half of edge B) . Sew the first half of edge B and edge B1 together.
    6.Turn the pillowcase inside out. Fill with polystyrene and fold inside 1.5cm (the width of your seam) of un-sewn edges (second half of edge B and edge B2). Pin those sides together and sew with invisible st these edges.

    Seams on the fabrics. Dotted lines shows the triangular faces of the finished pillow.
    Note in circle:Do not fill the pillow with polystyrene to the top. When the pillow is on the floor, in the upper corner should be air, so that the balls filler have room to move, otherwise filling will be hard to take the form of a seated body.
