How to Sew Piped Pillows

Ahhhh….sewing. There are many wonderful traits that I inherited from my sweet mom, but sewing isn’t one them. I kind of hate it. Scratch that. I strongly dislike it. I can sew pillows, though. That’s worth something, right?

I had some leftover fabric from the roman shades my mom helped me put together a couple of months ago, so I wanted to make some additional pillows for our couch in the family room.

Here’s what I did:

1) I began by measuring two 17” x 17” squares (above) to allow a seam allowance on each side for 16” pillows. After I measured, I cut the squares out.

1) I had some leftover piping from a previous project so I pinned the piping to my face fabric, rough side out, piping side in. I matched the edge of the face fabric to the edge of my piping (which also had a 1/2 inch seam allowance).
