Napkin Pillow

Back when I bought the tablecloth to create my daughter's bedding, I was able to pick up the matching napkins a few weeks later on a clear out sale.  Bonus!
So since then (can you tell I procrastinate), I've been meaning to throw together some quick throw pillows for her room with them.  
I had also found some clearance pink napkins (which were used for my daughter's Pinkalicious party) that I used too.


To create this pillow, you need to know how to sew four straight lines.  Seriously.  Simple!

Place the napkins together, right sides facing in and pin.


Sew around the perimeter, leaving a 4 inch opening.



Clip your corners.


Flip right side out and stuff with filling.


Be sure to stuff the corners of your pillow, too.


Sew the opening shut with a ladder stitch.


And. you. are. done.


Crazy easy, right?


And the two different sides adds a little interest. 


It's the perfect addition to my daughter's reading nook.  That's another part of her room I need to finish...



Hope you have a fabulous day!!
