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!
