    • With the seam ripper, create a 4-6 inch opening in the pillow about 2 inches from the corner.

    • To use the seam ripper: cut one stitch at a time using the sharp end. The red tip should remain upwards.

    • Place a tennis ball-sized amount of new stuffing firmly into the 3 intact corners of the pillow.

    • This will help open up and stabilize the shell of the pillow to ensure even distribution of the stuffing.

    • Continue adding stuffing to the pillow to desired stiffness.

    • To ensure a smooth and regular shaped pillow, gently pull at the stuffing until it is fluffy before placing it into the pillow.

    • Use the scissors to cut a length of thread approximately 24 inches long.

    • A dark thread is used here to maximize visibility. Typically, the thread would be matched with the color of the fabric.

    • Thread the needle and slide it to the center of the length of thread.

    • Triple knot the two loose ends together.

    • Start a ladder stitch from the inside of the pillow by pulling the thread through the folded seam, right behind the opening that you created.

    • Make a small stitch through side of the opening.

    • Make an identical stitch directly across from your first stitch, on the opposite side of the opening. Pull the thread taut to begin the new seam.

    • Repeat, alternating from one side to the other until you have reached the end of the opening.

    • Be sure to keep each new stitch on the folds of the original seam.

    • To compete the ladder stitch and close the pillow, pierce the needle through both sides of the seam and slowly pull the thread through until a loop is created.

    • Feed the needle through the loop and pull the thread tight.

    • Repeat this once more to ensure that the pillow is closed tightly, and cut off any excess thread with the scissors.
