Rear View

These pillows are just as pretty from the back as they are from the front - - - you'll have to take my word on that since I'm not showing the front - sorry - - - later.

I whipped up three pillows today using this fantastic little technique I found on Sew Mama Sew a few days ago - - - it is "sew" simple!


The little flap hides a zipper. Here I've used a main fabric featuring fun little bicycles, and an accent fabric for the flap.
On this example I used three different fabrics to create the back - - - honestly, you could use this side of the pillow and get rave reviews. The technique includes the use of fusing tape to simplify the zipper insertion process.
And, here's a more sedate example - again using three different fabrics. The Sew, Mama Sew site has a lot of great pillow hints!

Wondering what happened with all of that binding from yesterday - - - phewwww!!! Every inch of it has been sewn onto its respective quilt - - - I'm dizzy! I've got tons of binding ideas to exchange with you when I have time to write them all down - - - soon, I promise!

I love your zippers. How do you use the fusing tape?

Never mind! I looked at Sew Mama Sew and found the tutorial. It does make it look easy! I will have to try that. Thanks!
