Conquer your fear of zippers and make a professional looking pillow cover that can be easily removed for washing.
This tutorial will show you how to add easy zipper tabs to the ends of any longer-than-necessary zipper. No more last minute runs to the craft store. Just use whatever you have in your stash. I find that adding tabs also makes zippers easier to install. *Please note that using zipper tabs requires you to sew across the zipper teeth. Metal zippers will not work with this method: you must use plastic/nylon zippers.
Making new pillow covers is an easy and fast way to spruce up the look of any room.
If you want to make your own pillow forms, I also have an easy tutorial about how to do this on my Craftsy pattern page.
