I have been sewing for quite awhile and I get alot of questions on how to sew, I know this is simply for some of you but for those that are new to sewing or just want to learn or try it, this is a good place to start.
Alot of people wonder how they get that nice cord in there pillows, well I am here to show you how. I took alot of pictures so hopefully it will help you.

Step 1: Getting your fabric ready

Lay out your material and cut the size pillow you would like. For example mine is 18x15 inches. Don't forget to leave a half inch or more for your seam allowance.
Finally a decent resource for a project I've been putting off, thanks for your photos and advice! Hope to publish pics of a finished pillow soon!
This is exactly what I was looking for.  I will be working on my project today.  Can't wait!!!
If you need further help , just contact me and hopefully I can walk you thru it. Although I will be unavailable for about 2 more days (in bed sick) .  I am glad it will help you out.

very nice job!! I have made one pillow with the cording.
It is easy, the companies just make it look difficult. It makes you pillows look really nice. The trim on this one is made out of really thick material so that is why it is bunchy like that, If you use cotton or linen it lays so pretty.
Thanks for the Instructable. I am going to try this soon. You made it look easy.
Nice job!
Nice, you make it look so easy! I'll have to give it a try.
