No Sew Napkin Pillow Covers

No Sew Napkin Pillow Covers

If you love comfy, fluffy, fashionable pillows, but not the cost, then you will love these super simple, No Sew Napkin Pillow Covers made from cloth napkins! Yes, I said napkins! I love switching out throw pillows with the changing seasons or just to freshen up a room’s appearance. Unfortunately I don’t have a ton of space to store all these pillows. The solution is to make pillow covers for your existing throw pillows. And even better yet, we will make these pillows reversible!

No Sew Napkin Pillow Covers

You can find beautiful prints for cloth napkins at Target for a very affordable price. These Target Threshold napkins were the inspiration for my office makeover (which I will reveal very soon).
Threshold Table LinensTo make these No-Sew Napkin Pillow Covers, you will need the following items:

Step 1) Iron all your napkins well. You do not want any wrinkles before you begin.

Step 4) Add the Heat’n Bond tape to both the left and right side of the napkin, leaving the bottom open. Press again. No Sew Cloth Napkin Pillow Cover 6Step 5) Cut thin strips of Velcro Fabric Fusion Tape, remove backing, and stick onto the bottom seam, spacing about an inch apart. This is where you will be able to easily insert and remove your pillow. Align the top napkin carefully over the Velcro and press with the iron on steam setting. **Again, follow the manufacturer instructions.**
