Ruffled Pillow Tutorial:
1-2 yards of fabric in color of your choice (amount will vary by pillow size but more is better) I chose a fabric that wouldn’t fray on the edges when cut
Cut a square of fabric that is 1 inch bigger than the size of your pillow form. So, mine was 18×18, so my fabric is 19×19 inches.
Cut out about 100 small circles. The diameter of mine was about 5 inches but you can alter this as desired.
Fold each circle in half and then fold it into thirds like an accordion:
Place that on your pillow in the center. Then sew across the bottom tip:
Do this over and over placing each folded circle about 1/2 inch to 1 inch away from the previous one. I didn’t cut the threads on the back each time, just moved to the next circle and sewed, so my back was a mess by the end:
Continue this process until the whole front is covered. This will be time consuming.
Then simple place right sides together and sew around most of the pillow but leave about 5 inches open at the bottom. Turn it right side out and stuff your pillow form inside. Sew the bottom closed and you’re done!
