Nancy Zieman’s Absolute Easiest Way to Sew Pillows: Palette Pillow FREE! Sewing Tutorial

Sew our Nancy Zieman’s Absolute Easiest Way to Sew Pillows: Palette Pillow with our easiest ever sewing techniques, and Classic Timesaving Tips by Nancy Zieman, and see how using the right tools makes the sewing process enjoyable, even for beginners!

Note From Team Nancy6What is a Palette Pillow? Team NZP named our  Palette Pillow for the pillow’s front flat fabric surface, which is an ideal area — or palette — to showcase a variety of fabrics or techniques. Simply feature a beautiful fabric print – as we did with this pillow, or choose a fun novelty fabric, or a leftover quilt block. Try a new technique when making your next Palette Pillow: Prior to sewing your pillow together, decorate the square front fabric “palette” with ribbons, trims, buttons, applique, thread embellishment, machine embroidery, and/or nearly any embellishments you’d like – you’re the designer!

Timesaving Sewing Tips from Nancy Zieman      The “Wobble” Stitch! Use a “wobble” stitch when sewing knits. A wobble stitch is a very narrow zigzag stitch, that appears as straight stitching on the right side of the seam. Set machine for a zigzag stitch with a 2.5 length and .5 width.

      Wow. The jersey knit backing makes it easy to change pillow covers seasonally. This is an ideal design when challenged with limited storage space!

    Excellent tutorial for making a pillow. Good ideas. I like the idea of using the knit backing.

    I used this wonderful method…exactly as instructed…to make 6 memory pillows for my daughter-in-law, her 4 sisters and her step mother. They turned out magnificent! I will use this method on any pillow I make in the future. These pillows were given yesterday, Christmas Day, to them all from one of my DIL’s sisters. I would share a picture if possible. But not to be.
