Add a tailored finish to your pillows by having them trimmed with self welt (aka custom piping).

The term "self" means it's made from the same fabric as the face of the pillow. Or for a twist on that, you could combine fabrics and use one fabric for the face of the pillow and a different coordinating fabric for the welt, for the ultimate in customization!

I cut my welt strips on the bias (diagonally), which allows for stretch in the fabric to create perfectly rounded corners. It does eat up a lot of fabric, which is where some of the cost comes in. Some pillow makers cut welt strips "on the straight" which is less costly but usually results in sloppy corners.

Prices vary based on the cost of the fabric, the size of the pillow cover, and the number of pillows. There are cost efficiencies in adding welt to multiple pillows, so the higher the number, the lower the add-on cost per pillow.

To order:

  1. Fabric Pricing Tier: Find which pricing tier your selected welt fabric is in below
  2. Number of pillow covers: How many will have the same welt added?
  3. Quantity: It's important to leave this at "1"
  4. Be sure to add the pillow covers themselves to your cart separately
  5. If you want to add welt to multiple sizes or styles of pillows, repeat the process
