This one is really easy.
This pillow is 20"x20" when finished.
What you'll need: 1 yd of fabric, matching zipper, 20" pillow fill and a large button (or you could make this one) I've given the link on how to make this one towards the end of this post.
For the front you will need to cut 1 piece @ 21"x9" for the top flap(1)
1 piece @ 21"x 16" for the bottom half(2)
1 piece @ 21"x2 1/4" for the facing(3)
1 piece @ 8"x1 1/2" for the button loop(4)
For the back you will need to cut 1 piece @ 22"x22"(5)
Press the loop piece(4) in fourths lengthwise, first by pressing in half.
Then press the long edges again up to the fold line.
Find the center of the pillow top flap(1) and mark it with a pin. With the right side up, fold your loop in half and pin it to the center of the top flap. ( measure your loop against the button you will be using and adjust it smaller if you need to) I adjusted mine by about an inch.
Press facing towards the wrong side of the top flap and pin.
Here's a sewing tip: Use painters tape to put on your throat plate as a stitching guide when your stitching needs to be farther away from the edge.

All you have left to do is insert a zipper and stitch up the top and sides. You can find those steps here:
