Featured: Four Leaf Pillow Cover Tutorial

Beautiful throw pillows make any room cozy. Mmmcrafts has a tutorial to show you how to make this gorgeous Four Leaf Pillow Cover. The four leaves are wonderful and decorative but I think the contrast piping really makes the pillow. If you’ve never sewn piping now is your chance. The piping instructions in this tutorial are wonderful.
