DIY Cloth Napkin Pillows for a New Sofa

Using cloth napkins from Target (which were discounted to less than $3 for a pack of 4 napkins), I created pretty throw pillows for my home's sofa. Sewing and stuffing the pillows were both quite easy to do!
Time: 30 Minutes Cost: $12 Difficulty: Easy
I recently got a new chevron Mohawk Home rug and a La-Z-Boy sofa for my home's living room, so I've been working to dress up the space! So when I saw 4-packs of pretty cloth napkins on sale for less than $3 a pack at Target, I had to snag them! I knew the napkins would make great pillows!
To make my pillows, I simply sewed two of like-print napkins together on my sewing machine, leaving a 4-5 inch gap on one side of each pillow open so I could stuff my pillows. I then hand-stitched each pillow closed after I added the stuffing.
I love the print on this cloth napkin pillow!
I carefully pinned two like napkins together, with the print side facing in. I also made sure that the prints ran the same way. Then I sewed them together on my sewing machine. After two like napkins were stitched together, I reached in through the openings I left and turned the pillows right-side out.
Stuffing the pillows didn't take very long!

    I have been doing this for years and it is so nice to be able to change up the look of the house so inexpensively and not breaking the bank. Thanks for sharing I think other will enjoy the tip.

    Thanks, Lauri! It is a great trick! To fill my sofa with pillows, I need only spend less than $10! I can afford to change out my pillows every now and then by making my own!

      @Sandie S Me, too! Before these pillows, I made pillows out of really pretty double-sided placemats (cloth) from Target.
