Anne, who demonstrated a "how to" at a girl's craft night at her house awhile back! I sort of stored it away for later, and seriously.... using dinner napkins to do envelope back pillows, this took me 5 - 10 minutes per pillow. No hemming required. Only cutting, possibly only once, and sewing around in a square. It's the perfect beginner project or perfect way to churn out pillows for anywheres fast, and now you don't have to wish they had a pillow made from THAT fabric and why can't it go on my couch NO MORE!
-A clearanced Target 4 pack of cloth napkins
-A pillow form (Up to 16'' inches)
-Your sewing stuff
One napkin (the front) stays whole... the 2nd napkin gets cut in half. One 4 pack of cloth napkins will give you 2 pillows. Minimal sewing required. Need a pep talk?! You can DO IT!
Iron one of your napkins in half to make a crease
The rule of thumb with pillows is that you cut your fabric to the size of your pillow form, so it's full. My pillow was about 12'', so I just laid my pillow on top of my fabric and cut around it.
Now I just need a few more to make this couch complete!
easy curtains? Make them out of table cloths... also an idea from Anne... she's an amazing real life friend... you should all read her blog. She takes down molding with a kitchen knife completely insane and pregnant... and I love her!
