DIY: Pleated linen pillow tutorial.

Friday, July 13, 2012

A while back, I made this pillow for Kirra, and I liked how it looked on our bed so much that I (finally) decided to make another one!

Here's what you need if you'd like to make your own:
• 1 yard white linen fabric (I got mine from Joann's and used a 50% off coupon, making it under $8)
• 4 pretty buttons (mine measure 7/8")
• 16" x 26" pillow form
• Sewing machine with buttonholing capability
• White thread
• Iron & ironing board
• Scissors
• Pins
• Cutting mat and rotary cutter (optional)



Let me know if you have questions along the way! And if you make this and blog about it, please leave the link in the comments section so we can all see. :)

Happy sewing!

  3. SO pretty, thanks for the tutorial. I love everything you make! Tell us about that adorable wall art to the right (or left) of the bed. Did you make it? Do the numbers stand for anything?

    In regards to yesterday's post, you have THE CUTEST baby bump I've ever seen.

  8. This pillow is so beautiful, and I love it in white linen! When you make those perfect pleats, are they measured, or do you just eyeball their placement?
