Seriously, I had a major phobia about putting a zipper into a pillow form. The fabric, embroidery (from a class I took at a quilt show) and various zippers have been hanging out on my work table for about a month. It's far from perfect -- I was a little confused about where to start stitching around the zipper and there is a gap at both ends. I used the tutorial by Sewkatiedid (http://sewkatiedid.wordpress.com/2010/04/24/zip-to-your-pillow/) and "winged" the parts that weren't clear to me.
It feels good to have another long lingering WIP completed.
