Well, I put away my Lucky St. Patrickâ€™s Day Pillow and remembered that I bought some Easter fabric napkins on clearance at Target last year. At $.39 a napkin, I knew I could turn it into something cute. I actually donâ€™t have an Easter pillow (GASP!) so I decided to correct that and whip one up with two of the napkins. Not bad for $.78!
2 Fabric Napkins
Ruler/Rotary Cutter and Mat
1. First I cut out the â€œHappy Easterâ€ part on the blue napkin and frayed the edges a little bit.
2. Next, I cut out a 17â€ x 13â€ piece from the Easter egg napkin. And then I cut out two pieces 11 x 13â€ of the blue to make an envelope style closure.
3. I pinned and stitched the â€œHappy Easterâ€ piece onto the front of the egg fabric.
4. I pressed under the 13â€ side of the blue fabric twice and then sewed a straight line (doing this on both pieces of fabric). Then I pinned it in place and sewed everything closed. I clipped the corners and then turned it right side out and inserted a 12â€ x 16â€ lumbar pillow form.
It took me all of about 15 minutes to complete. Have I talked you into learning how to sew yet? You can do it! I am self-taught! Buy yourself a cheap starter sewing machine and experiment. Of course, I think pillows are the quickest and easiest way to change out a room so start there first! Do you love pillows? Click here to see more!
