Hi there. I've used your roman blind and curtain tutorials and have really loved following them. I now feel confident enough to tackle a piped cushion but see, from reading ahead in the tutorial, that it requires overlocking. Is this an essential purchase or are there workarounds with a sewing machine/hand stitching? Thanks in advance.
You can zigzag stitch instead with your domestic machine. The videos show you how.
I purchased a day's viewing of the piped cushion videos yesterday and today have a lovely cushion. I am now confident to make more. As you say in your tip the videos are extremely well worthwhile and great value for money! Your written tutorial is clear and extremely high quality, but nothing replaces a good demonstration. Your commentary and hints are very helpful and the close-up shots are superb. Thank you so much from a grateful sewer. PS I haven't tacked for a long time but followed your advice to do this on the zip, and got superior results.
