Follow along to learn how to make a pillow or cushion cover with piping! Sew your own DIY home decor, decorating your home yourself will save you money and you can custom create to suit your aesthetic!
We start by teaching you two techniques to make piping, then how to attach them to your cushion/pillow, finishing the join neatly, then adding a zip, finishing and overlocking for a professional finish. Easily apply these techniques to other projects such as clothing or costumes
Cutting your piping: We cut 6.5cm strips for our piping. We double our seam allowance (2.5cm), then add the circumference of our piping cord (ours is approximately 1.5cm, but it’s wise to measure yours before beginning).
Windows are brilliant conductors of heat, which can be really unfortunate when it’s 40+ degrees outside or freezing cold. Fortunately, curtains can really help insulate your windows and keep your home at an optimal temperature.
Our parent company, Julan Curtains & Blinds has made a great video that explains how this works.

When investing in quality home furnishings, you want to protect that investment by maintaining them properly. Here is a short guide to help you easily maintain your curtains and extend their life.Solid curtains only require a regular vacuum and spot clean to stay looking their best.Sheer curtains do need washing as per care label (hanging up wet helps reduce creasing). We do make large laundry bags for large sheers. Laundry bags are free when you purchase our sheers (or come in and mention this post).
How to Spot Clean:
Read care label
Test in inconspicuous spot using the following (depending on the type of stain & type of fabric)
Magic Eraser (try dry first, then dampened)
Wonder Soap & Water (using a cloth or toothbrush to gently rub mark away)
Follow along to learn to make a cushion or pillow cover with a cord trim using a sewing machine (also known in the industry as ‘flange cord’). We have started with two squares of our fabric cut out to the dimensions we want plus 5cm (2in) as we are allowing a 2.5cm (1in) seam allowance all around the edge. You can use this to sew a DIY pillow or cushion that matches your home decor and aesthetic!
