Introducing my latest sewing pattern, the Pleated Pillow Trio!
The Square Pleated Pillow uses 2 strips sewn together then stitched down into cascading rows of folds. The result is sort of a rippled effect with loads of depth and texture.
The Rectangular Pleated Pillow is great for beginners. Each pleat is tucked with a bit of hand stitching, essentially smocking the front of the pillow.

You might remember my how-to from a few months ago, the Perfect Strap Tutorial. I used this technique to press the sewn and turned strips and it worked like a charm!
I showed these pillows last fall in my Quilt Market Booth (maybe you can spot them here) and they drew quite a bit of attention. I promised folks I'd have the pattern ready in January and I just made it under the wire! The PDF version of The Pleated Pillow Trio is now available in my etsy shop or on Craftsy for instant download.
