DIY Easter Pillows Using Napkins

Well, I put away my Lucky St. Patrick’s Day Pillow and remembered that I bought some Easter fabric napkins on clearance at Target last year.   At $.39 a napkin, I knew I could turn it into something cute.   I actually don’t have an Easter pillow (GASP!) so I decided to correct that and whip one up with two of the napkins. Not bad for $.78!



2 Fabric Napkins

Sewing machine

Coordinating thread

Ruler/Rotary Cutter and Mat


1.   First I cut out the “Happy Easter” part on the blue napkin and frayed the edges a little bit.


2.   Next, I cut out a 17” x 13” piece from the Easter egg napkin.   And then I cut out two pieces 11 x 13” of the blue to make an envelope style closure.


3.   I pinned and stitched the “Happy Easter” piece onto the front of the egg fabric.


4.   I pressed under the 13” side of the blue fabric twice and then sewed a straight line (doing this on both pieces of fabric).   Then I pinned it in place and sewed everything closed. I clipped the corners and then turned it right side out and inserted a 12” x 16” lumbar pillow form.



It took me all of about 15 minutes to complete.   Have I talked you into learning how to sew yet?   You can do it!   I am self-taught!   Buy yourself a cheap starter sewing machine and experiment.   Of course, I think pillows are the quickest and easiest way to change out a room so start there first!

  1. Your Birth Announcement Pillow inspired me to make one for a friend and while I’m a super novice sewer, it was much easier than I thought. Thanks for all the great tutorials!

  2. I love that it cost you less than a dollar!

  3. You certainly can’t beat that pice! I really want to start sewing but just haven’t taken the plunge and bought a machine yet.

  4. Buying a sawing machine is really a great investment that opens doors for your future development and some really fun times! 🙂

  5. Adorable! Love the cute little “patch” on the front. 🙂
