Dish Towel Pillow

Thanks for Sharing!

I’ve got an easy Dish Towel Pillow to share with you guys. I found these pretty dish towels and thought… you know what… these would make the cutest pillow for Spring!

I’d been eyeing some cute dish towels at Target for the past few weeks.   I loved the colors and the print, but I didn’t want them as dish towels… I wanted to make some cute, new spring pillows with them.

So when I saw them last week on clearance for only $4.13 for 2 towels, I grabbed up 2 sets.  The sets came with this pretty floral print and an abstract blue tones towel.

How to Make a Dish Towel Pillow

I folded one towel in half (the long way) and inside out…

and sewed 3 of the four sides with the sewing machine.

Then I right sided it out, stuff in a pillow form that I had cut in half (perfect fit for this smaller size pillow)…

and hand stitched up the 4th side.

Folks, I am not a great seamstress… I mean the machine gets pulled out only like 3-4 times a year and if I was able to create these cuties you can too!

Don’t you love when you can turn something simple, like a dish towel, into something you can enjoy everyday!

Other Pillow Projects:


  1. I have made pillows out of place-mats before because. Placemat is usually made of a much thicker material and a little easier to sew by hand, This makes me to sew a few easy pillows again. Pillows make everything else in the day so much better. there almost isn’t anything better than having a bunch of pillows to brighten our day. Almost.

  2. Love it!! I bought those same napkins…. On clearance…. For the exact same purpose. Of course we moved and the sewing machine died… So mine aren’t nearly as cute 🙁

  3. I adore this pillow Maryann. I pinned it and it went nuts, so obviously others do too:) I have done this before but not with a pretty one like you. I have to find a pretty one now:}

  4. I’m totally crazy about these DIY Towels! What a pretty updated vintagy print! Thanks for sharing at Project Inspired! I pinned this to our group linky party pinboard! xo Heather

  5. What a great pillow! I just picked up some napkins from Target that are going to become pillows! Great look and great colors.
