This was my first attempt at sewing in a zipper and I think it turned out pretty well. I'll definitely get better, but these pillows are definitely presentable. To make the back pillows, I first sewed in the zipper. I got to use my zipper foot, it is a nice accessory to have. Here are some pictures of the process:
After the zipper was in I stitched up the other three sides of the pillow. Then I went back to the first side and stitched on either side of the zipper to complete the pillow.
Then I turned it right side out. Here is the finished product:
