Pillow covers are finished. They were a lot of fun to make and are of some of my favorite colors.
Each pillow cover has a zipper sewn in one end making it easy to remove when it comes to cleaning and pressing.
Adding the zippers was a simple task. Before sewing the pillow cover together, just sew the zipper to the front side (right sides together), then fold the front over, iron in place and stitch close to the fold. For the quilted fronts, I stitched a second line, just to add a little stability due to the added thickness of the batting.
Repeat the process to the back side of the pillow cover. Open the zipper and sew up the other sides of the cover. Here is a good tutorial that demonstrates this process by A Home in College Hill: Zip It!
Sewing pillows watching Pride and Prejudice. My sister would say "watching Pride and Prejudice, again!?!" My response... "you can never watch too much Pride and Prejudice."
For more information on the fabrics used, see my previous post: Back in Business.
Have a great week and happy sewing!
