I love Pottery Barn! But I don’t always love the prices. I was browsing around the store recently and saw these beautiful napkins. They were $6.50 each. Kinda pricey to wipe your hands on (if you ask me), but cheapo for pillows. Inspiration hit! I have been looking for pillows for my sofa but not diggin anything I’ve seen. I picked up four napkins, costing under $30.00. I had plenty of fabric at home to use for the backs, so there was no additional cost.
To make the pillows, first iron the napkins. Determine the size pillow cover you want and cut the fabric accordingly, adding 1/2 inch seam allowance all the way around. (I made two 20 inch and two 18 inch pillows.) For the envelope style back, cut two pieces of coordinating fabric 1/2 the length of the pillow plus 6 inches. Fold the seam of both back pieces 1 1/2 inches and iron then fold again two inches, iron and sew the edge of the seam. With right sides together, sew 1/2 inch seam on all four sides, turn right side out and iron. Voila!
