How to Make Your Own Nautical Pillows

Beautiful nautical pillows.

From a package of clearance curtain panels.

They were inexpensive and they look like the same fabric as my Pottery Barn table runner.

But I'm not thinking grain sack today, I'm thinking nautical.

I whipped up a couple of envelope pillows which are only only 2 seams each!

When they were finished I stenciled on my favorite number.

And these cheap curtains are now 2 nautical pillow covers.

Perfect for the deck.

  2. Sweet! I love, love, love that fabric!!!

  3. Those look great - right out of a magazine!!

  4. Oh, I LOVE them! And what a great idea to keep your eyes out for clearance curtains! It seems like I'm constantly changing the covers for my couch pillows and have used all kinds of fabric and napkins, but never thought about curtains before. Great tip! They look great Susan!

  5. Your pillows are awesome! I love getting deals at the Christmas Tree Shop, I didn't know they had them in New York.

  6. Very nice idea you had there!

  7. The pillows look good...what a great idea!

  8. I love the pillows! The fabric reminds me of seed bags - would be great for my outdoor space :)

  9. I like the pillows but do tell why #12 is your favorite number?
