Free Pattern Friday – Pillows and Piping

New reader Sheryl e-mailed me this week with some great video tutorials she uses for piping and a suggestion on how to make my first pillow cover.  Her suggestions prompted me to look for some other pillow tuts and I thought I’d share the piping videos since I thought they were very helpful.

And now for piping! Piping is really easy to do on a slipcover type pillow case. Here is a series of video tutorials showing you how to do all sorts of piping. There are 20 videos in all, I’ve only linked some of them here.
