Boxed pillows may appear to be the same as boxed cushions.  The difference is pillows are designed to sit up on one end and cushions are most often sat upon.

Making boxed pillows can be tricky.  Especially getting those corners matched up perfectly.

The boxed cushion in this tutorial has an invisible zipper closure, rounded corners, boxing strips that are cut into four sections and stitched in the corners, with optional topstitching, and piping along the front and back edges of the pillow.

Have you ever perfectly planned your pattern placement for your boxed pillow, stitched the welt cord around the front and back pieces, and then added the boxing strip only to realize the corners did not all match up?  I have!  And I have seen this happen in the classroom as well.  That is why I’ve created this educational PDF for you.

This PDF tutorial will teach you how to –

  • Plan the pattern placement
  • Cut the pillow pieces based on the size of your pillow insert
  • Insert an invisible zipper between the welt cord and the boxing
  • Assure the corners will all match up
  • Add optional topstitching at the corners of the boxing
  • Price boxed pillows
