These past few weeks have been filled with Christmas sewing projects for the family. My mom and cousin both got aprons made from Amy Butler’s Domestic Goddess patterns, and I whipped up a decorative pillow for my grandma. The pillow was my first attempt at sewing an invisible zipper, which I was told was a Very Difficult Procedure when I first learned to sew. After watching a quick tutorial and giving it a whirl myself, I discovered that it’s not only simple, but gives your finished project a clean, more professional look. Whatever did crafters do in the age before YouTube?
