Learn to sew a piped cushion with zip opening



Learn to sew a piped cushion.

Piping on a cushion cover really adds that extra finishing touch and gives a really professional look. Add in a contrast colour or co-ordinating colour, you can be as artistic as you want with this technique.

Adding a lapped zip is also a great way of adding a zip without having to insert it into the seam along with the piping and it looks so neat and tidy too.

You will learn:
How to make piping using ready made bias binding and cord.
An awareness of the technique to make your own bias binding.
How to neatly insert piping into your cushion cover.
How to insert a lapped zip into the back of the cushion cover.
Tips for a professional finish.

Zip foot for your machine
Marker pen
