I have news! Another project for the nursery is complete! No … we haven’t finished painting (not even finished with the first coat). No … we don’t even have the boys moved out of the nursery (because their room isn’t even remotely finished).
The baby may not have a room, however he or she now has a thrifty pom pom throw pillow! Apparently, I’m really good at prioritizing what’s important (ha!).
I found some cute fabric napkins on clearance at Marshall’s the other week for $5. I was thrilled! Then I went to check out, and found out they were 40% off that price. $3 … even better. I mainly just liked the minty color and geometric pattern, and knew they would be great for something in the nursery. Some yellow Pom Poms from JoAnn’s and 30 minutes of sewing later, I had a fun pillow cover for the nursery (that will exist one of these days … I hope).
And here’s the deign board for the nursery (read more about the plans here):
But back to the pillow …
Basically, I ended up using 3 of the 4 napkins in the set. I made a simple envelope style pillow cover. For full details and tutorial on how to sew an envelope pillow cover with Pom Pom trim, see this post. Here are some pictures of the process for this cover:

Now … I’m off to do some actual work on finishing these rooms … 5 1/2 weeks and counting …
