I had such fun making my first pillow following Diana's instructions that I decided to recover an old favorite pillow. For this one I followed the directions in her book for adding a zipper. The dimensions of my pillow are different, but I found it quite easy to adjust her instructions. I learned quickly that working with zippers takes patience. I made some mistakes, but fortunately the textured fabric combined with the matching color of the thread makes them nearly invisible unless you know where to look. And it was a great learning process. For example, I learned to take advantage of the allowance on the zipper tape. Sewing too close to the teeth results in disaster!
