    I just made my first pillow with cording, oh what fun!!! Everything turned out great, will place my pillow inside, but not sure how to finish it..? Do I hand stitch the entire one side closed? Or, can you put it on the machine, with the zipper foot, hems in and do it that way? I am lost! Please help! Thanks! :)

    Do you plan to remove the cover> IF so, an invisible zipper closure is always lovely.

    I have gotten lazy with pillow covers, I make the back in 2 pieces and overlap them in the middle of the back.

    I'm sure that yours is already together and you just need to finish. If that is the case I would just whip stitch closed. If needed you can always 'frog' it for the wash.....

    This is how I do t as well... it is easy and fast. I hate putting in zippers, so, this method suits me just fine and the pillows remove easily.

    "frogging" would be ripping out the stitching.
