I have never done piping or envelope backs. I have actually never even put in a zipper. I have watched someone once, but never attempted it myself. However, that didn't stop me. I looked up on Youtube different tutorials and planned out my strategy. I made a practice pillow that was slightly smaller and made adjustments where needed. Each time I sewed it got better and better, and by the third and fourth pillow, I really hit my stride! Something helpful was that I used my regular sewing foot for putting the piping onto one side of the fabric, THEN, I used my zipper foot to sew all pieces together. That's my helpful tip for you!
Here is what we started with:
Dull, Drab, and Boring!
But, NO more, my friends! Here are the fun fabrics that Kim picked out! She wanted Bright and Cheery for her children's playroom futon/guest room.Premier Prints Dandelion, Damask, and a Bird Fabric for one back and a Ty Pennington Coral Fabric for the center pillow!
I love the different options that you can get with using the reversible fabrics! This look is another favorite option of mine!
We haven't done her window treatments yet, because I am busy this week working on The Mather Company's Window Treatments for their flip house! If I keep getting window business, I think I might have to go to school to become a professional at this, so I can work with designer's and other clients. That would be fun! Don't you think!?
