Next week I will have my first sewing class for our neighborhood. I am not a professional by any means but I can make a few household items. Our first week we are making a pillow. It is a pretty simple project. But in the spirit of sewing I wanted to share this great video that shows how to make piping. It only takes 18 inches of fabric and it makes 18 feet of piping.
I was shown this video when I took a sewing class from a friend and it has changed my pillow making a lot. I can really customize my decor and home. The video is a little dated but the finished product is great! This video has a part one and two.

I am not sure if it will load from this post. If not just copy and paste to your search bar.
I was surprised at how easy it was to do. The first time I tried this I used a old piece of fabric from a previous project in case I messed up. If you can sew, you should try this.
Here is an example of my last project that I made my own piping for:
Thank you Jenni and Jenny for teaching me how to sew!
