DIY Pottery Barn Napkin Pillow

Did you know Pottery Barn napkins are perfect for making throw pillows? They are 20"x20" and already hemmed, AND they're cheap compared to the cost of a Pottery Barn pillow. A few weeks ago I got to browse around the Pottery Barn store and I found this blue Block Print napkin. Individually, they're $5.95 a piece. I loved the colors and pattern and thought it would make the perfect pillow.

I washed and ironed the napkin and grabbed an old standard pillow we're not using anymore. Standard pillows are 20" wide so I just needed to cut one side off, keep all the filling to make the pillow more full, then stitch up that side.

I hand stitched the napkin around the edges to the front/sides of the pillow following the hem stitch that was already on the napkin. It blended easily.

You can see where I got the napkin here. There's lots of cute Summer prints right now, and lots of other patterns that could work year round like the classic solids and ticking stripes. I love how my pillow turned out!
