First of all, I have been featured with some other fabulous furniture makeovers on The DIY Show Off, so make sure you check it out!
I have had several questions about how I make my slipcovers & pillows, so I thought I would share some sewing tutorials. I am a self- and book-taught seamstress, so I am not a sewing expert, but I can share with you how to sew pillows, slipcovers, and curtains for your home. This tutorial is on how to make your own custom piping (trim) to be used in your home decor sewing.
Fold it over the cord and the end of the other fabric strip. Sew away!
When you run out of cord, just put another piece of cord up against the end, fold the fabric over it, and keep sewing.
Here’s an example of piping used in an ottoman slipcover. I hope this tutorial was helpful. I have two pieces of furniture that need to be slipcovered for our shop, so I will show detailed tutorials of that process as well. Keep checking back!
