I've had the idea to make new pillow covers out of cute napkins tucked away for awhile awaiting just the right napkin. so when centsational girl said she got cute napkins at world market - that's where I headed. of course, I had to wait until we were headed to Richmond to get them cause we don't have a world market near by, but it was our first stop when we got there!
They had a bunch of really great napkins, but these struck my fancy the most and were also on sale for $2.50 each!
The reason the idea of making pillow covers out of napkins is so appealing, is because they are already a perfect square and if you are covering square pillows then the logistical work is done. All you need to do is sew three straight lines with the right sides facing each other - super easy!
Then, turn it inside out and insert your pillow. For the fourth side, you'll need to hand stitch it closed as seen in this post.
And you would never know these pillows were covered with napkins - they look great!
Now I think I need to find some bright blue napkins to match. :)
