- 1 napkin for the front of each pillow (I bought 2 since I wanted 2 pillows)
- matching fabric for the back of each pillow (I used canvas drop cloth)
- matching thread
- measuring tape
- sewing machine
My napkins measured 20″ square and I needed my finished measurements to be 18″ square to fit my inserts. So to eliminate extra work I used 1″ seams so I wouldn’t have to take out the existing seams in the napkin. These measurements can be adapted to fit any size insert as long as it’s smaller than the napkin.
On one end of each of the drop cloth pieces create a 1″ double fold hem by turning it under 1″ twice.
Then sew it in place close to the edge.
With right sides facing, lay your backing pieces on top of the napkin with the finished seams in the middle.
So one is overlapping the other like this.
Then sew it all the way around using a 1″ seam. I clipped the corners, turned it right side out and ironed it flat.
I added a button and button hole to the back to secure it.
Linking up with a few of these parties. Check them out!
