Dish Towel Pillows

I have been seeing these pillows or a similar idea everywhere lately! And by everywhere I want two reference two favorite blogs- Mine for the Making and Tatertots and Jello.

So when I was at Big Lots and saw a 3 pack of dish towels in bright summer colors for $1.99 I had to grab a couple of packs. $4 for 3 pillows is pretty amazing to me!

I was lucky enough to already have the fluff so I didn’t have to add more cost there.

Aren’t they pretty towels to start with?

I made it even easier by putting them wrong sides together and then just sewing around and having a visible seam. No sewing, flipping and trying to hide a stitch. These pillows took me maybe 15 minutes to make all three. Best type of project!

I stuffed them with fluff through the small opening I left.

And sewed them up! Since one is yellow, you know Avery claimed it as her own.  Then she claimed them all because they had yellow in them as well.

    Really cute fabrics! I haven’t been to Big Lots in ages…maybe it’s time to make a trip.

    My outdoor pillows from last year are really faded, so it is time to make some new ones. Love these!!
