Step 7: Piping

Piping is optional but I think it adds a nice touch. Cut bias strips 2" wide. Since my pillow was 18" on each side, I needed a total of 72" plus a couple of inches for overlapping the ends. sew the strips together until you get the length you need. Press the seams open. fold over cording and pin. Using a zipper foot, sew the fabric around the cording. 
It's a pity that the three beautiful shirts were gone...but the pillow is beautiful too
