Easy Gratitude Script Napkin Pillow

This Pillow will take about 15 minutes to complete !

Gratitude is so much more than thanks.
 It always includes blessing, sharing, grace and gathering—all of which is expressed here, on
this script-printed cotton-linen napkin from PIER 1
 A simple way to greet the Fall season and to enjoy everyday!
This beautiful napkin was originally available at Thanksgiving. It is so popular that Pier 1
 has been keeping in in stock year round. I leave my pillow out all the time.

Napkins are perfect to repurpose into pillows and these already have a decorative edge.
 I think it has a farmhouse
 feel and coordinates nicely with other colors and styles.
Don't we all need to be reminded to have a grateful
heart at all times.
 The napkin sentiments are gratitude, thanks, blessings, grace, and gathering.
  • Natural
  • 20"W x 20"D
  • Cotton, linen
  • Machine-wash gentle cycle
  • Imported
                      The napkin has a lovely black crocheted edge. We want to see the edges
                            so we will be sewing  our seams on the front sides of the napkins.
2 Napkins
18'' Pillow Form or
Poly Fiberfil Stuffing

off- white thread
sewing machine or fabric glue


Two napkins, unfold and iron out the fold lines. 

Lay out your napkins with right sides out and make sure the
writing is the same direction on both sides.

Pin edges together, you will be following the seam that already exists.
Sew three sides, fill with Poly Fiberfil or pillow form and top stitch
the last seam with sewing machine.

Remove pins you're finished.

I  have it here with a Drop Cloth Pillow that I made so you can see the color.

 I hope you enjoyed this quick and easy pillow project.
Let me know in the comments or just say HELLO!

  1. I hope my local Pier 1 has these in stock! I LOVE the word gratitude and have to actively work at being "Humbly grateful instead of hatefully grumbly." I think I might be Scroogey and use plain black or an ecru (If I have something that matches) for a backing. Great project!

      I like how you think! I am sure you will find one.
      Thank you so much! Please stop by again. xo Lisa S

  2. So lovely, I made these a few years ago for Thanksgiving and gave a few away as gifts. I use mine every day. Can't believe they're still selling the napkins:) xo Kathleen

    1. Kathleen,
      I made my first one a few years ago too. I think they were so popular that they kept them around. They did discontinue the placemat though. Thanks for hosting! I really appreciate you. xo Lisa S

  3. What a great way to make some fun pillows, there are always fun napkins and placemats that can be used and then there are the vintage napkins at yard sales.
