Zippers are one of the trusty workhorses of the sewing world. They normally go about their jobs， opening and closing without much fanfare. But recently， it's become quite trendy to let them out from between the seams to shine on their own. Today's fancy and fashionable pillow does just that， featuring zippers on both the front and back. The back zipper is the official opening to insert the pillow form.？The front zipper is fully functioningboudoir pillow cases， but is there as embellishment only； it opens onto an inset placket. You can show off the pillow from either side. Both zippers are highlighted with parallel strips of decorative stitching， and that eye-candy front zipper also has a long tassel for extra appeal. The pillow can even be displayed with the front zipper partially open to adjust the placement of the tassel.？cheap throw pillow covers
We used an amazingly soft and plush Fairfield Home Elegance？ pillow form in a 20" x 20" size.？You can also find 14"， 16"， 18"， 24" and 26" square forms as well as a 12" x 16" rectangle and a luxurious 20" x 28" bed pillow.？
We can't emphasize enough how important the inside of the pillow is to its finished look. The Home Elegance？ line is Fairfield's most deluxe choice and an excellent， economical alternative to down. You get a 100% cotton， 300-thread count jacquard cover filled with a special 100% polyester gel fiber. The result is an exceptionally plush textured pillow with a designer look and feel. And， thanks to their super cushy inside， you can get that high-end， karate-choppable look.
We originally used Osaka in Tin from the World Tour Linen collection by David Butler for FreeSpirit Fabrics. This fabric came from our S4H Stash and is no longer readily available. As an alternative， take a look at the following newer fabrics below from Fabric.com：
Our pillow finishes at approximately 20" x 20" with a slightly looser slouch to the cover.
