Check out Studio Gatz. My daughter, Sandy, just opened this online store and it has some wonderful handcrafted items including cards, pillows, glassware and dishtowels. She is also mixing in some vintage items. If you need a special gift, this is the perfect place to look.
I was the pillow maker this past week. These pillows are made out of linen or other textured fabrics. I covered the cording and added it to the edges (I was told the pillows HAD to have this). Most have a hidden zipper in the back with a decorative fabric strip doing the hiding. Sandy wasn’t sure she would like the look of this but we both loved it once I did the first one.
I used this tutorial from Sew Mama Sew to insert the zipper. It made the zipper a breeze and so beautiful. I think the back looks just as good as the front. Don’t you?
