Tutorial Tuesday: Put a zipper in your pillow

I used this handy tutorial for putting a zipper in your pillow (or cushion) by Erin from House on Hill Road when I sewed my Habitat sofa cushions. I don’t know about you but I think having a nice, tidy, hidden zipper in my sofa cushions is brilliant. It looks very professional.

In this tutorial, Erin walks you through step by step by making what she calls “the ugliest pillow ever” in order to show you how to do it. I won’t re-publish the whole thing in this post, but here is a snap so you can see what I mean. Ugliness aside, it’s extremely helpful that she uses different fabrics because there is a moment between steps four and five where you can easily get a bit lost.

Here’s the tutorial. Have fun!
