    Note: Seam allowances are 1/2". If ironing is needed, use medium set dry iron.
  1. Cut and center Square By Design™ Square to measure selected pillow size, adding 1/2" to all sides for seam allowances.
  2. Cut one piece backing fabric the same size.
  3. Cut fabric to cover piping cord into strips measuring 2-1/2" x width of fabric, cutting enough pieces to go around the pillow edges. Pin short ends of strips right sides together and stitch, creating one long continuous strip. Press seams open.
  4. Attach zipper foot to sewing machine. Lay piping cord along the center of the wrong side of the sewn fabric strip. Fold fabric over the piping cord and align fabric edges. Stitch close to the cord.
  5. Beginning at the center of the lower pillow edge, pin piping to right side of Square fabric edge, aligning all fabric edges. Leaving 3" of piping loose, stitch piping to pillow front. Clip piping seam allowances every 1/4" when stitching around corners. Ease piping in place as necessary. Stop sewing 3" from starting point. Cut off one end of piping to overlap other end by 1". Trim ends of piping to meet. Fold fabric on overlapping end of piping under 1/2". Lap around the other end and finish stitching piping to pillow front.
  6. Pin Square to backing fabric, right sides together, aligning edges and corners. Stitch, leaving an 8"–10" opening along the bottom edge. Insert pillow form. Hand stitch opening closed.
