All this week we are going to be talking about cording. Cording (also known as piping or welt) is probably one of the most common ways that I add a little pizazz to the pillows and window treatments that I make. Today I am going to show you examples of pillows with cording as an embellishment. For our Window Wednesday this week, I’ll be showing you different ways that I’ve used cording for valances, cornices and drapery panels. On Friday we’ll get down to the nitty gritty of how to make cording.
I have rounded up some examples of pillows that I’ve created over the years. In this first example there is a lot of cording going on!
This pillow sham has cording around the center portion.
This striped pillow has bias cut striped cording around it’s edges.
I love the pop of pink cording on these orange euro shams.
Here’s a close-up of the neckroll pillow that is in front of the orange euro shams in the picture above. This time the orange coding is popping on the pink fabric.
This is another neckroll pillow that has cording around the edges of the end of the pillow, and the other pillow’s center section has been corded with coordinating fabric.
So, what do you think, do you love cording as much as I do? What are your favorite ways to use it for pillows?
I’m partying here!
