About This Class


Sewing is a great way to update your home decor. Jennie from Clover & Violet will teach you how to sew a pillow slipcover with a hidden zipper in the back. This is a fun, easy way to decorate for the holidays, change decor for different seasons, or just make something new for your home.

This class is great for a confident beginner or intermediate sewer who already knows basic sewing, including how to use a sewing machine, adjust needle position, and change stitches to a zig zag, and is comfortable completing a small project on their own. This class is also great for a more experienced sewist who has not yet tackled zippers.

Although this class teaches installing a zipper, no special feet are required, only a regular sewing machine foot.

I loved taking this class! Jennie did a great job of explaining each step. Highly recommend.
I enjoyed this class. This skill wasn't new to me, but I tried to view the class as a beginner would. Jennie explained things clearly and the pillow cover is very cute and a practical way to show off some of that stash we all have accumulated!
I really enjoyed following along with Jennie. The step-by-step instructions were excellent. I'll never make a pillow without a zipper back again!
