Nancy Zieman’s Absolute Easiest Way to Sew Pillows: Palette Pillow FREE! Sewing Tutorial

Sew our NEW! Nancy Zieman’s Absolute Easiest Way to Sew Pillows: Palette Pillow with our easiest ever sewing techniques, and Classic Timesaving Tips by Nancy Zieman, and see how using the right tools makes the sewing process enjoyable, even for beginners!

What is a Palette Pillow? Team NZP named our NEW! Palette Pillow for the pillow’s front flat fabric surface, which is an ideal area — or palette — to showcase a variety of fabrics or techniques. Simply feature a beautiful fabric print – as we did with this pillow, or choose a fun novelty fabric, or a leftover quilt block. Try a new technique when making your next Palette Pillow: Prior to sewing your pillow together, decorate the square front fabric “palette” with ribbons, trims, buttons, applique, thread embellishment, machine embroidery, and/or nearly any embellishments you’d like – you’re the designer!

Timesaving Sewing Tips from Nancy Zieman      The “Wobble” Stitch! Use a “wobble” stitch when sewing knits. A wobble stitch is a very narrow zigzag stitch, that appears as straight stitching on the right side of the seam. Set machine for a zigzag stitch with a 2.5 length and .5 width.
