January 1 By Fine Craft Guild 20 Comments Want to meditate and do more yoga in the new year? A zafu meditation pillow is a firm, high cushion that is specially designed for seated meditation and certain types of yoga.
One fabric Length of 59 inches, 6 inches to 9 inches wide (depending on how high you would like your cushion to be). You’ll need Kapok fiber for your pillow filling (or buckwheat hulls for a firmer seat.
Three inches after the first set of pleat markings, make the second set, as indicated above.
Hi, I want to make a zafu for my husband – does anyone know roughly how much kapok I will need (by weight) to fill it if I’m using this pattern?
I don’t know, but I am asking around for you and will let you know when a smart person answers me with what you need to know. I had to enlarge pleats, not ease the fabric, in order to fit the pleated strip to an 11” circle. In step one, marking out the pleats, im having trouble ending up with 14 pleats and with 3 imces on the right side. I have featured this on my blog post, 7 Tips for Creating a Sacred Space in Your Home, and have linked back to your page.

Buying a zafu of my own didn't seem like a reasonable option since even the cheap ones start around $30 a piece, and I need to use two. Making the pillow yourself is not too difficult & you get to choose the fabric, size, type and amount of filling giving you a 100% customized pillow.
Sew along the length of the fabric both on the top and bottom edge, and your pleats are all done! Once it’s all sewn up, flip it right-side-out, fill it up (we used buckwheat hulls), and sew shut the opening that was left.
Turn inside out and stuff with kapok or buckwheat hulls (through opening in the side that the zafu will have) It’s best to use a lot of stuffing material.
Out of all the ones floating around online I ended up following this one and my meditation pillow came out awesome, thank you! If you continue to use this website without changing your cookie settings or you click "Accept" below then you are consenting to this.
In class we have access to meditation pillows (or zafus) which we use, but outside of class period I have no access to them.

The two zafus I made ended up costing me less than $20 each, but it may cost more if you need to purchase fabric.
Elevating your hips over your knees a bit lets you sit taller and for longer periods of time so you can do your thing.
Do you want one for your home without necessarily spending the $60-80ish bucks they can go for online? You ideally want a sturdy enough fabric, thick cottons works well, and pretty colors and patterns can only help. It looks easy very easy, i wonder if it’s really easy to make when in real situation. Measure 3 inches and make another three marks .75 inches from each other like the first time. Thus, making me concentrate with my meditation and achieve mindfullness and enlightenment at the end of the day.
