It's true: pillows are the ideal way to get started sewing. This one's super easy to pull together— so easy that you could make it with your kids — and it'll teach you a bunch of key skills you can apply to future projects. Or maybe you'll just keep making pillows! If you ask us, every room in the house deserves at least a few.
After warming up with her extra-excited counterpart, Sara shows you how to work a sewing machine. Practice using it (without the thread) on a piece of paper. Then get familiar with some of the different controls, seeing how different lengths of stitches look on paper.
Now that the prep work is done, you're ready to sew the pillow together! Learn how to insert the pillow form and hand-sew the pillow cover shut. Then, Sara shows a few variations. Not to be outdone, Sarah shares the behind-the-scenes video she's been making throughout class.
