I love to find fabric at Target for pillows. What's that, you say? It's not a fabric store? Right you are. But, I'm in love with so many of their fabrics in their table linens section that I pretend it's a fabric store, so it all works out. I've used Target table cloths as curtains before (more than once), and I love to turn their placemats and napkins into pillow covers. Often, the fabric patterns are the same as what they sell on their actual pillows for a whole lot more just an aisle over. Sometimes it's as easy as seam ripping open a placemat end, stuffing a pillow form in there, and sewing it back up. But, I decided to try something different this time and made a removable (and thus washable) envelope pillow cover. I found a set of four napkins in a fabric I liked. I only used three for this pillow. One was the front of the pillow cover. Then I overlapped two on the back to make the envelope side. Then I pinned it all together, cut off the excess and sewed a few straight lines. Voila! I beautiful pillow cover that's removable and easy to make. And here are a few pictures. Here's the seam on the back (using the finished edges of the napkins, so I didn't even have to worry about sewing them myself):
Here's the backside:
And here's the front:
Super easy and inexpensive. Let me know if you have any questions!
