As one who has never claimed to be a seamstress – I can manage to sew a straight line. One of the easiest things a person can sew is pillows. For these pillows I used napkins from Cost Plus. Why napkins? Well half the work is done for you. They are pressed and the edges are pre-sewn. No worry about cutting straight and keeping edges straight too. Most stores carry a collection or set making it easy to mix and match. All that is left for me to do one this set is to add the embellishments. Maybe a large button.
