Brighten outdoor( I say indoor too) spaces with decorative pillows made from cloth napkins. Use spares when their matches have been tossed or lost, or buy single napkins that catch your eye.

MATERIALS

  • One 20-inch cloth napkin
  • 12- or 14-inch square pillow
  • Sewing kit
  • Button
  • Cord

STEPS

  1. STEP 1

    Lay a 20-inch square cloth napkin face down, positioning it to resemble a diamond. Center a 12- or 14-inch square pillow form on napkin.

  2. STEP 2

    Fold in 2 side points of napkin to middle, then fold up bottom point. Hand-stitch through all 3 pieces of fabric along upside-down V, about 2 inches down on each side. Stitch a button to bottom flap near point.
