How to Add Piping to a Pillow
(left photo courtesy of Creative Little Daisy)
This will be the easiest tutorial ever for me to write. Why? Because I didn’t have to write it! Autumn over at Creative Little Daisy wrote this tutorial on piping for Sew Mama Sew. And I surely give her technique my Cynthia Seal of Approval. Ok, so there is no such thing as my seal of approval. Even if there was, it means diddly-squat (where did that darn phrase come from anyway?) but this is 100% exactly how I make piping for pillows as well.
The best part? Autumn used some of my machine embroidery designs to adorn her pillow. I am loving the black and white. Fresh and modern. I was wondering if any of my customers used the simple outlines I try to include in many of my design packs. I guess Autumn answered that for me!
Fiver years later I am still loving my chocolate brown piped white pillow shams on my bed. It’s all about the dark and light fabrics when doing piping, in my opinion, which again, means diddly squat.
