608 | Zippity Pillow

Lessons in Creativity | Jenny Kae Parks | Runtime (8 min)

Have you ever made a test block and wondered what to do with it or made a few extra blocks “just in case” and needed a project for them? Jenny took four block Z’s and turned them into a pillow with a decorative ribbon in the center. She demonstrates how to embroider decorative stitching on the ribbon with your sewing machine for a bit of extra flair, then talks about color choices of ribbon and thread to match the fabrics. See examples of other ribbon colors and thread colors she embroidered with decorative stitching before choosing which ribbon was the right one to finish the pillow with.
