Serger Ruffled Pillow

Hi sewing friends!
Here's some serger sewing inspiration for you.
Tula Pink fabric and Anna Maria Horner ribbon
give a contemporary twist to a traditional style pillow.
All the sewing on this pillow was done with my serger
The project video is on Baby Lock's Love of Sewing member site.
The fabric strips are ruffled using the serger ruffling foot,
then they are sewn down to the base fabric.
The edges of the ruffles are finished with a narrow rolled hem.
A zipper makes for easy washing and switching out of pillow covers.
The cording foot was perfect for a serger sewn zipper,
and binding clips are the perfect substitute to use in place of pins.
Sergers and pins don't play nice together!
The back side is the perfect canvas to showcase that awesome #tulapink fabric
The only change I made to the pattern was the addition of Spanish hemstitching
to attach the ribbon between the fabric panels.
To do that, I used my Bernina Spanish Hemstitch accessory.
All in all, this was a quick project and it yielded really professional results.
Gotta love those sergers.
