Thrifty Paper Napkin Pillow



Use inexpensive paper napkins to re-cover pillows and thus refresh your home decor whenever you wish. Surprisingly, the pillows are quite durable! This project comes to us compliments of Heidi Borchers for Inspired at Home.

 Animal Print Pillow


  • Paper napkin(s) – design of choice
  • Sewing machine
  • Poly fiberfill
  • Aleene’s® No Sew Glue (optional)


  1. Each pillow uses two same size paper napkins with all the plies attached. It’s the layers that give the paper napkin more durability. When you are selecting your design, keep in mind that you can mix and match and layer your patterns.
  2. Line up edges, place wrong sides of napkins together and stitch a ½” seam on three sides.
  3. Fill the pillow’s unstitched open end with the poly fiberfill.
  4. Stitch the last edge up and trim the edges if necessary.
  5. I stitched the edges using a sewing machine. I like the clean look of the stitches but you can also glue the edges together with Aleene’s® No Sew Glue. Be certain that the glue is completely dry before stuffing pillow.

Heidi’s Designer Tip: A great alternative to paper napkins are paper guest towels. They come in a fabulous assortment of design patterns and shapes.

A great idea and you can get so many beautiful designs, too. Sometimes they are on sale and you can get several sets. They would make lovely matching patchwork throws for side tables for bedroom or lounge. I would have fun by mixing and matching several packs of napkins. Their uses are endless. My favourite craft is to make carnations from them. What a great theme idea! Many thanks.
