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 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!

    Where did you find the bird napkins? I didn't see them on Target's site.

    At Home Goods or TJMaxx you can find inexpensive quilted placemats. They too make great pillows when sewn together. Remember to over stuff them.
