How to Sew A Zippered Pillow Cover

How to sew a zipper in a pillow cover

Promise. Possibility. Potential.

If I had a fabric store, that’s what I’d name it.

Those words describe exactly how I feel when I walk through the doors, grab a cart and start running my hands over all of the beautiful textiles. It seems as if anything is in the realm of possibility. There is just something magical that happens when my eyes take in all of the wonderful colors and patterns. I instantly feel better, no matter what is happening in my life. It’s no wonder there are stacks and stacks of fabric in my studio.

Pretty sure I’m not alone…:)

Decorative throw pillows are a great way to bring those beautiful fabrics that inspired you off the shelves and into your home. Especially if you add a zipper. Zippers allow you to make quick seasonal design changes and freshen up any room in your house.

    I feel the same way when I go into a fabric shop… and some days… so does my husband! LoL…
    Our quick sometimes seasonal change in our household is/are pillowcases. This is where the hubby comes in. I make pillow cases all the time… (our grandchildren love to iron them… go figure! lol)
    Sometimes with more than one type of fabric… using an additional one for the cuff… sometimes just one piece. He will go to the fabric shop with me if it’s to choose fabric. I just finished a pair of Mickey Mouse cartoon print cases that are so fun. Always reasons to buy more fabric! Oh, yes, I too have lots to pick from in my own “fabric shop”…. I have my girls come here before they go to the fabric shop to buy. I figure if they can save money… the better for all of us. They get fabric and it’s not going to waste! 😉

    • How fun that your husband gets in on it. And your grandchildren, too!! Just goes to show that sewing can be a family affair. 🙂 I totally agree with your grandchildren about the ironing, for some reason, I love it, too. Thank you for your nice comment, Jean. Have a wonderful day!!!
