Whip out a curtain and reproduce this project

There's nothing more comfortable than cozying up with your favorite pillows and a good book. Even better is when the space looks like it was made for you and only you. With this fun project, you can create your very own soft, inviting reading spot from something you probably already have around the house: pillows and curtains.
If you don't have any, you can pick up some at a hobby, big-box or thrift store for not a lot of money. Feel free to get creative. If you have the time and resources, you can even make multiple seats that fit your decor in multiple rooms.

Instructions
1. Measure your pillows. The ones used in the video are 21 by 28 inches (53.34 by 71.12 centimeters).
2. Multiply the length by the number of pillows (in this case, by three). Add about 1 inch (2.54 centimeters) of ease and 1 inch (2.54 centimeters) for seam allowance. This will be your fabric length.
3. Add about 6 inches (15.24 centimeters) to two times the width so you can fold in and sew down the piece like an envelope opening.
4. Cut out the appropriate measurements from the curtain so that you have two equal halves. Pin down the edges slightly and sew to create an even hem around the edge of the fabric.
4. Pin both halves together and sew the edges.
5. For the extra flap mentioned in step 3: Pin down the very edge and sew along the outer edge of the fabric, but leave the middle open. This is where you'll stuff each section.
5. Pin and sew the spaces between, where each pillow will go.
6. Stuff the pillows into their spots.
