kissing pleat pillow

There’s something about having a whirlwind of vibrant children and all of their colourful things in a house that makes me love peaceful shades of linen and white. I’ve been thinking about sewing with texture, and starting to play with old techniques like pleating and pintucks. This pillow is an astonishingly easy pattern; the kissing pleats are made by knotting on the back of the linen. Now that autumn rains are falling I’ll make some variations.
