This is a pet peeve I have that I need to share with all of the inexperienced, or those brave enough to teach themselves.
Pillows are easy to make, BUT the difference between a professional looking pillow and a "I made it myself
Step 1: Always leave the opening on the bottom CENTER, a hands-width wide:
Use a 5/8" seam allowance and ALWAYS snip the corners at an angle so that you get clean, sharp, "pointy" corners when you turn it right-side out:
and most importantly, learn how to sew the INVISIBLE (or blind) stitch to close it properly. No one should EVER be able to find the area that you stitched closed!
I hope this helps all of you to create pillows that look expensive and professionally made!
