I Conquered Cording and Invisible Zippers

Went to the second and final part of the "pillow with custom cording" class at City Craft last night. It was lots of fun and I learned so much...plenty of helpful little hints that will make all future sewing projects go more smoothly. Anyhow, here's the end result:

Not too bad, eh? Gotta love that $7 per yard IKEA fabric!

 I'd love to make a long bolster for this spot...could be my next project.


Look how invisible my zipper is...oh wait, you can't even see it, can you?


  1. great job, I wish I was that crafty!

  2. It looks so great! I would love to know how to make a pillow with a welt.

  4. I'm impressed :) I once made a pillow with cording after buying a sewing machine, sewing supplies and paying for a 5-week sewing class. My husband likes to call it my $500 pillow! Unfortunately, I never made another one. . . .

  5. You are such a sewing natural :) I loved having you in class. I'm working on expanding our home decor series. Any other home dec projects that you would love to learn how to sew up?
