    Amazing! I love how you used the RRR napkins. I am totally going to copy you when decorating my little sisters college room…Genious!

    Ha, I JUST saw your space on D*S and hopped over here to see if you knew! Congrats! (Out of curiosity – did you submit your room, or did someone nominate you, or did D*S find you directly?)

    Brilliant! I have some RRR napkins that I've been contemplating turning into pillows for my banquette and now you've inspired me to actually DO it.

    Great idea! I hadn't thought of napkins. I have a bunch of pillow projects hanging out waiting for me to get my act together. Thanks for the inspiration!

    FABULOUS!!! Love this post and it comes at a time when I want to try to sew my own. I have great fabric remnants…. I will be back to look again when I take out my machine.

    You are such an inspiration!! I'm so excited to try this myself. If only I had a sewing machine. In time I will.

    I'm so glad you posted this! I just ordered some great fabric to make pillow covers, but have yet to take my sewing machine out of the box. I'm inspired now and will make a serious effort to sew them over the long weekend.

    I don't consider having a project sitting around since fall procrastination. I have projects that have been sitting for years. The pillows are adorable and I love the idea of using napkins.

    These look amazing! I wish I had a sewing machine. I would make a ton of pillows in a lot of great fabrics.

    It's good to know I'm not the only one who breaks down when I sew 🙂 These are amazing! You did such a great job!

    Great job ! I just made some out of some fancy hand towels that were on clearance at Home Goods for $1.00.

    These are great! Talk about going above and beyond for a client. I found you through another blogroll and I'm so glad I did – I will certainly be back. BTW, I asked for a sewing machine for Christmas one year, my mom bought it and she has been the only one to ever use it!

    Incredible job! LOVE the "fabric" you used ~ such vibrant colors! They really look great 🙂

    I love these and you did a great tutorial! The one thing that I learned when I made some pillow covers like this is to leave an extra inch or two of overlap in the back in case your pillow is extra fluffy. My first pillow cover had a gaping back when I stuffed it because the overlap wasn't quite big enough for the fluff!

    How clever. I love all fabrics you selected.

    Just stumbled across your blog (mine is loveofinteriors) great tutorial- and I'm with you on the sewing dilemna! I have been on the hunt for pillow fabric that I can see and quickly buy (as opposed to order) and cheap too. So using napkins instead is a great idea. Oh- and your guest room is very fun!

    I'm a big fan of making pillows out of napkins. So easy. Yours look fabulous!

    Congrats on the D*S feature! Everything looks amazing…and this pillow idea, brilliant. I still can't get over the fact that your husband can sew…so jealous!

    Very nice job with those pillows! I have a pile of cool fabric just waiting to be used……maybe I'll get to it this winter!
