I took a few pictures to show you how I did it:
First you will want to read the original tutorial to get a basic idea of how the pillow is made. (I am making a 16" pillow so my base for the pillow front and back is 17" to allow for seam allowances)
After pressing the strips in half along the length, you will cut the strip in half. Each strip will yield 2 layers of the pillow.
Now we're ready to add our second row of pleating.
Repeat for each new strip, alternating the sewing direction so the pleats are changing direction on each row. When the pillow front is finished, press down the pleats so they lay flat against the cover. Finish off your pillow in whatever method you like best, making sure you don't catch your pleats in the top or bottom seam allowances.
Now go enjoy your gorgeous pleated layers pillow.
Have a great day!
p.s. I am going to skip the boutique update post this week. Gwen is flying into town tonight for SNAP and we're going to be partying all weekend. I'll be back on Monday with a Mom-day post and next week will (hopefully) be jammed with boutique goodness. We'll see you then.
Linking up to Tip me Tuesday on Tip Junkie.
