Napkin Folded Pillowcases

Brighten outdoor 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.
Make several pillowcases using various hues and designs, and swap them whenever you want a quick change of color scheme. The covers are a breeze to make and care for.

How to

Lay a 20 inch square cloth napkins face down,positioning it to resemble a diamond. Center a 12 or14 inch square pillow form on napkin. 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 flap near point. Fold down top flap;sew a loop of cord to underside of fabric as a button holder,ensuring it fits snugly around button when closed.
