    Instructions:
    v First, take 1m satin cloth & cut it lengthwise as given below.
    v Turn the wrong side & mark 2 inches on both sides for stitching using a marking chalk.
    I'll mention the 2 end lines as l & 7.
    v Mark 8 inches on the top & 8 inches below (These two portions are left free from any marking). In the mid u’ll get 6&1/5 or 7 inches approximately. Partition it into 6 boxes as given below. It differs according to the cloth u buy(It need not be 6 inches accurately. Calculate & divide the mid rectangle area into 6 boxes.

    Continuation….

    v Now start a running stitch from point on the line 1(only in the mid box) then gather the running stitch & put 2 or 3 knots.
    v Continue putting running stitches in all the lines, gather then put a knot, cut the thread. So u get 7 knots all together(pls make sure there r 7 lines for 6 boxes.
    v Now u get a bag shape(6 bags) after stitching those knots. Now u’ve got to fill those bags with recron material(make shape cylindrical) & push the cotton inside then put a strong knot in the mid so that the material doesn’t come out.( This knot frames the flower shape in the centre.)
    v The 6 balls forms the side part of the cushion.

    Continuation….

    v Now stitch the Line 1 & line7. Machine stitch is compulsory here. If u don’t know stitching no problem, u can have it stitched with those who r sitting in front of textile showrooms.
    v Start a running stitch from line 1 to line 7 in the top end, then gather it off then put a strong knot. Then place a button in the top. So one side of the cushion is finished u get a bag type (one side closed & other side left open)now. It’s the turn for us to stuff the material as much as u can. B’cos the way we stuff is the look we can get.
    v After finishing with the stuffing, we’ve to close the other side as the same way. But u’ve got to give the needle from this side to the other side just like the balloon wala doing the apple balloon. I hope u people understand.
    v Flower shaped round cozy cushion is ready.
