Pillows from napkins

As I was walking around World Market a few weeks ago, I fell in love
with this print and decided to turn the napkin into a pillow. 
At $15 it was a little more than I wanted to pay but it made it’s way into the basket which meant I had to get creative with the other pillows. 
 I ran across these beautiful napkins for $3.00 each . They were the perfect size for a toss pillow!

I bought two napkins and went to work, not bad for $6.00.
The boys are loving the space, just a few more tweaks and I’ll show you the whole room, promise!
Step by step tutorial on how to turn a napkin into a pillow.
~Have a fabulous day~

  2. So cute. Just used much of that line in a client's house. I just love it. Excited to see it all!

  3. This is another item on my decorating bucket list. I always love when I see creative pillows like this and I need to do it myself! So much more budget friendly, as I can't get over how pricey some throw pillows out there can be!

    Can't wait to see this room!!!

  5. Kristin, great idea re napkins and pillows. But the rug!!! I love it – where was it purchased?

  7. LOVE those pillows!!! Wish I could get those napkins over here so I could whip some up myself!! Exactly the look I'm after. I actually bought a vintage embroidered teatowel off Etsy last week to turn into a cushion for my daughter's bed.

  10. Sounds like you're having a great time finishing the room. I think you put 'then' instead of 'than' in your post. Also, 'it's' instead of its. Small detail, though. Can't wait to see the finished product.

  11. Well. This is just too gosh darn pretty! All the peeks at your room seem to point out to a fabulous space. I still can't get over the bookcase redo. So gorgeous!

  12. Hi Kristin,
    Just thinking of you this am, stop by if you get a chance. I'm giving away a burlap table runner from my new collection.


  13. oh my gosh I am so loving your blog! I just posted about how I'm going to try the kissing ball – and now I see this! I am not much of a seamstress but I spent two weeks making a huge purse customized for all my stuff, out of beautiful napkins! I really loved working with the napkins, so much that I ended up making a cosmetics case and a brush case too! I've added you to my reader 🙂

  14. Love this idea! I am going to have to make some too. Thanks for all the great tips. BTW Grayson is on of my favorite names! It was on our list.

  15. just found your blog…love it. i made 2 pillows with the exact same napkins a couple of weeks ago! i did a gray napkin on the back side to go with my decor. can't wait to follow you now!
