Well, I put away my Lucky St. Patrick’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 don’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
- Sewing machine
- Coordinating thread
- Ruler/Rotary Cutter and Mat
First I cut out the “Happy Easter” part on the blue napkin and frayed the edges a little bit.
Next, I cut out a 17″ x 13″ piece from the Easter egg napkin.
And then I cut out two pieces 11″ x 13″ of the blue to make an envelope style closure.
I pinned and stitched the “Happy Easter” piece onto the front of the egg fabric.
I pressed under the 13″ 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 12″ x 16″ 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!
