I have the hardest time finding throw pillows for less than $25, especially in fabrics I like. But napkins, they're usually a little better priced, and with styles from places like Anthropologie, Urban Outfitters, Crate and Barrel, Pottery Barn, Ikea, Target, and more, there's got to be something that will match my decor. Here's a brilliant idea that is simple and affordable, and has limitless possibilities. Napkin throw pillows!
This is so easy it doesn't even justify a full tutorial. Just put two napkins right sides together (they can be the same or two different coordinating napkins), sew all the way around, leaving about a 2-inch space unsewn. Turn right-side out and push out the corners. Fill with polyfill, stuffing, or batting, and then sew the 2-inch hole closed (either with your machine, or by hand to hide the seam). If you're a more advanced seamstress, you can also make a cover for a pillow form if you want something you can take off. Just add a zipper.
