I did it!
Using napkins, I made a pillow!
I had purchased these two [extra long] napkins at Target about a million years ago in the clearance section [a random end cap]. I always knew I wanted to make a pillow, but again, I am l-a-z-y. Finally did it during Spring Break!
I laid my napkins on top of each other to where their "pretty" sides were touching [hence, the "ugly" side was on the outside]. I pinned the edges so I could sew them together, leaving a bit of space so I could turn it right-side out again and stuff it.
I ironed the now-pillowcase before I stuffed it, just to get a lot of the fold wrinkles out of it [from its packaging]. And of course, now viewing the pictures, I can tell I did not get all of the wrinkles. Awesome.
I used this stuffing from Walmart [for $3.47, because I'm awesome like that] and stuffed away. If I could do it again, I'd probably add more stuffing to fill out the pillowcase better.... but I'm a bit of the impatient...
Next, I hand-stitched the hole closed [not my best work, but alas, I teach Kindergarten: not a professional seamstress!] and admired!
Look at it all pretty on my dark brown couch with other blue/green pillows [that don't match, but it's all good to me]. They probably won't stay there, but I wanted to get a feel for what it looked like on the job! A bit lumpy, but those will get worked out. Do you like how the bright blue looks like a beacon of light on the dark couch? Ha!
And I think Oliver [who so desperately needs a haircut] likes it too :)
