Cover/Chainstitch Pillow

Get comfortable with threading and stitching on a Baby Lock serger with this fun pillow! Using a variety of colored and decorative threads will give this project a unique look that will pop!

Supply List:

  • Rainbow Colors of Madeira® Aerolock thread (2-3 of each color)
  • Rainbow Colors of Madeira® Decora 6 or Cotona 4 Decorative Threads (1 of each)
  • Purple Thick/Decorative Thread (like a jeans thread)
  • Optional: Variegated Blended Color Decorative Threads (Madeira Decora 6 or Cotona 4)
  • 1 Spool of Madeira® Aerofil Polyester Sewing Thread to Match Fabric
  • 1.5 Yards of Home Décor Fabric (for pillow front and back and bias strips for cording)
  • 19” Square Piece of Lightweight Fusible Interfacing
  • 65” of 3mm-5mm Filler Cord (for cording)
  • 16” Pillow Form
  • TOOLS:

    • Baby Lock® 8-Thread Serger or Cover Stitch
    • Serger Cording Foot 5mm (BLE8-CF)
    • Baby Lock Sewing Machine
    • Narrow Zipper Foot (ESG-ZF)
    • Pearl and Piping Foot (ESG-PP)
  • STEPS:

    1. Numbered Cut your pillow front as a 19” square (I like to go larger because the cover stitch with decorative threads tends to warp your fabric until we square it off).  Fuse interfacing to the backside of this 19” square. Cut two rectangles at 17” x 12”.  Cut 2” bias strips for your cording (I love this technique)!  Sew bias strips together to create about 66” of continuous bias.
