    A first for me...

    I have been "scared" to try a zipper on anything, even though I bought one months ago in hopes I would overcome the fear. Today was that day!

    I made a pillow with a zipper on the back!

    This is the front:


    The back with the zipper covered:


    Zipper showing:



    It was my first and I am so proud of it. I did use some old fat quarters in case I messed up and I didn't want to waste something new. Oh and the insert is one I made filled with buckwheat hulls.

    Looks great. Putting under it under that band is a great idea.

    I saw the band idea on a blog so I thought I would try it.

    It's amazing how we put off trying something new and then, realize there was little to be worried about! I think we are a lot smarter then we give outselves credit for! Great job!!
    I quilt, therefore I am.
