  • Reduce design #BE110201 20%.  Print 7 templates and layout on the center of the pillow top in a pleasing array. Mark each design placement with Target Stickers. Or use the Bernina Embroidery Software 6 kaleidoscope feature to create entire array to fit within the Jumbo hoop.

  • Embroider the wreath design in the center of the pillow.

Construct the Pillow Backs

  • An easy center lapped zipper technique is used for the pillow closures.
  • For each pillow, cut 1 piece of fabric the same height as the pillow front – and 4” wider than the pillow front. Fold this piece in half and cut so that the width is cut in half. 
  • Press zipper flat. Zipper is larger than needed to allow ease in sewing. The zipper will be cut to size later.
  • Align zipper along the inner just-cut edges of one of pillow back halves, right sides together.
  • Using Foot #1D, engage dual feed and move needle to far right.
  • Stitch the zipper down by aligning the center mark on the zipper with the center line on foot #1D as shown.

  • Open fabric and press. Topstitch along the fabric edge using Zipper Foot #4D.

  • Press under a 1 ½”  hem along the inner edge of the remaining half. Then place this piece right side down on the table.
  • Lay the piece with zipper right side down over the hemmed piece aligning the un-sewn zipper edge with the raw edge of the hem. Pin in place.

  • Stitch through all layers by aligning the center mark on the zipper with the center line on Foot #1D as shown.
  • Lay the pillow front on top of the back and mark where you need to trim so that the front and back are the same size…do not trim yet! Important - Open zipper halfway so that this zipper pull is in the middle of the pillow back. Trim.
  • Stitch a zigzag stitch at each end of the zipper to created a “stop” so the pull does not accidentally fall off.
  • Sew the front of the pillow to the back right sides together using ½” seam.
  • Reach in and open zipper and turn right side out.
  • Press.
  • Medium and Rectangle pillow: Add pillow form.
  • Large Pillow: Topstitch ½ along all side of pillow creating a small flange. Then add pillow form.
  • Enjoy!
