Simple Zippered Pillow Tutorial

I get asked a lot about what projects are good for beginners and this zippered pillow cover is really easy and a great way to practice a zipper.

Time Required: About half-an-hour

Skill Level: Beginner

You'll need:

  • Home Elegance® Pillow 24″ x 24″
  • 2/3 Yard 54" Wide Cotton Fabric OR 1 1/3 yards 45" wide fabric.  Regular quilting cotton will work, but I prefer a medium weight cotton for this project because it holds it's form better.  (Note: The particular cotton fabric I chose came 54″ wide which allowed me to cut both pillow pieces side-by-side from 2/3 yards of fabric.  If you’re using regular 42-44″ wide fabric, you may want to make 20″ pillow, so you don’t have to buy twice as much fabric.)
  • 22" Zipper
  • Coordinating Thread
  • Pins
  • Sewing Machine
  • Rotary Cutter and Mat or Scissors

You can find my full tutorial for the Simple Zippered Pillow and Step-by-Step Instructions on the Fairfield World website here.
