Finish Square Pillow

1. Centering design, trim couched white square to 14 -1⁄2" square including seam allowances.

2. Stitch beaded cording to all edges of couched white square, beginning 1- 1⁄2" from cording end; use a zipper foot to stitch as close as possible to the beads. As you stitch each corner, round it slightly while gently easing cording into place.

3. Cut end of cording so the ends abut, then stitch in place to complete pillow top. (Place a small amount of clear craft glue on each end of beaded cording to prevent fraying.)

4. Join pillow back to pillow top, stitching around all edges and leaving an opening for turning. Turn right side out, stuff with fiberfill, and stitch opening closed.
