Knock Off: Pottery Barn Pillows

I love to knock off.  Why pay top dollar when you can get the same look for a fraction of the price?  I've been hunting...literally hunting for pillows for our living room sofa.  I had a picture in my mind of exactly what I wanted and when that happens, I won't settle for anything else.  I was doing some hunting at  Ross just outside of town and found these square Tommy Bahama napkins.  I immediately fell in love with the pattern.  THOSE were my pillows!!!  Snatched all four of them up for just $10.

Two of these HIDEOUS pillows have have been sitting in our closets since we've been married, waiting for the day they would be transformed into something a bit more attractive.

I took advantage of the beautifully finished edges of the napkins
 and sewed the napkins right around the pillow. It was a perfect fit.

Minus the professional camera snapshots, the pillows are pretty darn close!!
