DIY Pillow Covers

Hey y’all! Today I’m sharing my super secret cheapest possible pillow covers. Except it’s totally not a secret since I’m about to tell you all about it. Whatever. By this time, everyone on the planet knows what a huge impact throw pillows can have on changing the feel of a space. But if you’re like me, you can’t bring yourself to pay $30+ dollars for one pillow. I’m the kind of girl who walks into a Target with three dollars in her pocket fully intending to find the best possible deal. (Don’t lie, you’ve been there too.)

Back to what I was originally talking about. I’ve discovered the secret to time travel the cheapest throw pillows! A few weeks ago, I went into a World Market for the first time, and it suddenly hit me! I could make pillow covers from napkins! Now, before you stop reading this, I’m not talking about paper napkins covered in pizza grease (why pizza grease? I don’t know.). World Market has a great selection of cloth napkins that are perfect for making pillow covers. On my trip there, I picked up these cloth napkins. Under $8 for four! I was in cheap girl heaven!

Okay, so here’s the deal. This is not a sewing tutorial. My sewing skills are basic at best, so I’m not going to explain in that great of detail how to sew these. These napkins are 20×20 inches, so they are perfect for and 18×18 size pillow or smaller. After bringing my napkins home, I ironed them, and got them pinned and ready to go.


Again, I’m not going full out with the sewing tutorial here. The napkins are already cut in perfect squares, so I just sewed in some straight lines. Easy enough. Here’s how they look afterward:


I really love the way that these turned out, and it was SO EASY. I made two covers for four dollars each. You really can’t beat that price.


I chose this pattern because it plays well with the neutral tones in our living room (and because the only color I add in decorating is blue). But there are so many choices at World Market, the possibilities are endless!
