We finally bought a new couch because our family could no longer fit on our old one. We had grown from 2 people to 6 in 8 years. If we wanted to watch a movie together as a family we were sitting on top of each other or someone had to sit on the floor. So we bought a great sectional that has enough room for us and a couple more! We love it, but it didn't come with enough pillows. Each person needs a pillow on family movie night! So my "to-do list" had *learn to make a couch pillow with a zipper* moved onto it. I found a great tutorial here, Mommy by day Crafter by night, for a pillow that was the exact size I wanted to make and had fringe on it. The zipper tutorial I actually used was from Curbly. I thought their tutorial for putting a hidden zipper in was the best. I had never done a hidden zipper before and the step by step process was so easy for me to follow here. The pillow took me 1 1/2 hours to make because I was slow reading each step over and over, but I love my pillow. Now my husband is begging me to make more.
