Don’t you just love it when inspiration strikes you in a nano second? That’s what happened to me recently when I was shopping in Marshall’s. I had just started organizing and creating a design file for making over our master bedroom. Here in Atlanta we have many wonderful fabric and design centers. While, I am always drawn to the beautiful textiles and patterns I am often shocked at how costly fabric can be.
As I was walking up and down the aisles I spotted these napkins.
I knew in an instant that they would make great pillow covers for our master bedroom. The colors were perfect and I knew they could be sewn into pillow covers with minimum effort! Also, the price was right – at $6.99 I could make two pillows – or four pillows if I used a contrasting fabric for the back.
- Right sides of the fabric face each other
- The cut side of the fabric is at the bottom – I sewed this side first.
- Sew the other two sides
- Leave the fourth side open – as this will be the pocket opening for your pillow form. The best part is that with this opening, the sewing is already done for you and creates a nice sewn edge.
Stuff your pillow cover.
Remember this wing chair that used to be plaid until I painted it? You can find that project here.
