Step 4: Sewing the cording on the fabric.

Using regular sewing foot, start in the middle of one side of the pillow leaving 1/2 inch to 3/4 inch cording not sewn, sew down to corner, make a cut as shown being careful not to cut where you have sewn, pivot as shown, and continue sewing till you reach about 1 inch from end. Pull fabric back from cord, clip away extra cording to where it would meet the other cord,(it may be necessary to cut your threads back some., Now place other end inside of the other piece and sew, making sure you fold down a little bit that is going to be on the outside. (notice picture)
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.
