You've picked out the cozy bedding, gotten the dorm-friendly extra-long sheets and other dorm room essentials. Perhaps you've even made a cozy fleece throw for the bed. Now it's time for throw pillows - because even the most spartan couch or mattress can be made comfier with the addition of a little softness, and depending on the fabric pattern you choose, these soft no-sew fleece pillows can look manly, preppy or girly. And these are probably the fastest, easy pillows you'll ever make!

Here's what you'll need to get started:

  • A soft, square pillow insert, available at any fabric or craft store in sizes ranging from 14-inches square to 24 inches or more. Midrange - 16-18 inches - is best for a bed or couch. For a soft floor pillow, grab an insert that's 24 inches or more.

  • Two fleece squares that are 6 inches larger than the pillow insert. If your pillow form is 16 inches square, cut two 22-inch squares. For an 18-inch pillow, cut 24-inch squares.

  • Scissors or a rotary cutter.
