I saw this awesome napkin on clearance at West Elm and knew I had to make it into a pillow. My only regret is that I didn’t get 2 of them. So if anyone has one of these napkins floating around I will kindly take it off your hands.
Don’t you just love the colors and design? And it’s perfect for my living room.
I started by folding the napkin in half. Since it’s a square it doesn’t matter which way you fold it. Then I stitched along the folded side to make a faux flange.
I stitched the rest of the pillow together following the finished stitches on the napkin, making a faux flange all the way around the pillow, leaving a 3″ opening to be able to add the batting.
I like to over stuff pillows filled with batting because they tend to flatten out a bit. Once it was filled I stitched up the rest of the pillow.
I really love the color and pattern it adds to the room. And the best part, it took under 15 minutes to make.
Brilliant! I am going to try this, it is one of those things that just would never have occurred to me on my own, but now that I see it, it’s a “duh” moment. 🙂
the colors on that napkins are just amazing! what a great, quick craft to liven up the room
