Pier 1 Napkin to Fab Pillow DIY

I LOVE the look of script on fabric but I haven't found any that is just right, so this fabric napkin at Pier 1 was perfect! Alas, it was the last one. But at $4.95 for a generous 20" square napkin with pretty black crocheted edging, it was a real find!

As you can see, the writing is wonderfully done with the theme of being thankful. 

I hemmed a muslin square all the way around then
carefully sewed it to the napkin so the pretty edging would show.

And here SHE is!

I crashed my stash for a down pillow in just the right size then put the cover on it.


She is relaxing now with her pillow family on my bed. This is where I put all my pillow cover designs to see if they fit with my whole eclectic collection decor theme and are worthy of my Etsy shop. I really am pleased with this project! She was quick and easy and low cost and fits in perfectly with her siblings.


  1. Ann,

    LOVE the pillow! Great idea.
    A girl after my own heart. I am a pillow addict. I have a wonderful collection of antique pillows. I love to change them out with the seasons and holidays or just for a new look. You can change the feel of a room just by changing out the pillows.
    Great post. Thanks for sharing.
    Will visit again soon.
