Shabby Linen Pleated Ruffle Pillow

I have been doing a little decluttering and cleaning around here this past weekend. My living room actually is beginning to look normal!

I only got through half of Jessie's closet. I did manage to get 3 bags for Goodwill from that half though! I would like to think I would get the rest done during the week, but I know better. It will have to wait until this weekend for me to finish it.

I did take time this weekend to make a "Shabby Style" white linen pillow with a pleated ruffle. It is an envelope style with a flap.

The pillow insert is a little fluffier than it should be. I need to flatten it a little to fill out the corners.

When I finished the pillow cover, I reached on the couch for the pillow form and realized my dog Patrick had left a smudge of his paw print on it - thanks to the melting snow.

I am sure everyone knows what happens when you wash those pillow forms! They somehow become really FAT!

A couple of days with a heavy firesafe box sitting on it, should take care of the problem!

I love the way this turned out! Just what I wanted! I didn't have a pattern, I just winged it!

Be back soon!

"Winged it"?? Yippy, I love it! Your pillow is beautiful! It's so fancy & your pleats are perfectly even.. something I could never accomplish while "winging it". It looks fabulous and would go so perfectly with the cute little lamp you made last week!
