Bolster Pillow with Coordinating Flange with Invisible Zipper
I promise when I have this technique down, I will post a tutorial. Why is it so tough you ask? Because it has a zipper. You can just barely see it here in the bottom left corner where the mohair meets the flange.
Doesn't this fabric just look gorgeous?
If you have any suggestions on books or tutorials on these types of pillows, please let me know. I'd love to pick something up. The most difficult part is joining the two pieces together after the flange has been attached.
Here is what it looks like before joining front to back. This is the front. The back, not shown, has the invisible zip placed between the flange and mohair at the bottom.
Then they are stitched wrong sides together and turned right side out. Then stitching down the flange near that zip is where the challenge is. I'll keep working on it though and share when I have it perfect.
