    Smile Looking for a pillow pattern

    When i was a teenager I made these pillows that were made out of upholstery material. She cut the fabric in a square app. a yard. Then she drew lines on the fabric with a yard stick and chalk and made a grid. Then you put I think a corner together and then you sew the corner fabric together in one spot then you moved on to the next one. Eventually the fabric became round and you stuffed it and made buttons for both sides to sew in the middle. Its possible it may be a pleated ribbon pillow but I really dont know. I would appreciate any help I could get. I would love to make these pillows again. Thank you, Brenda Rowton

    That second link looks like it should be the one. I remember making one of those! There was some way you fussed with the pleated section to make it look like basket weave.
