Welcome to the March Pinterest Challenge Blog Hop, hosted by My Pinterventures. The purpose of this Pinterest Challenge is to motivate all the participants of this hop (and you too) to not just pin, but to make it happen! So this month, I chose to make these Easter Tea Towel Pillows. It’s no secret that I love Target’s Dollar Spot or as they call it now, Bullseye’s Playground. You can find such adorable seasonal decor and often times crafty items. So when I saw these adorable tea towels, I knew I wanted to make pillows with them like I saw on Pinterest. For just $3, I got two sweet Easter-themed tea towels, enough to make two pillows. Considering a lot of seasonal (and regular) accent pillows cost over $30, this simple sewing project is both thrifty and resourceful.
So the original pin is from House by Hoff from back in 2015. She took some cute tea towels she found at Home Goods (love that store too much) and had her mom sew them into pillows. It just kind of stuck with me and I have collected a wide variety of tea towel sets since then but have yet to make any. Until now. Thanks, Pinterest Challenge!
Be sure to Save it on Pinterest if you want to make it later!

Easter Tea Towel Pillows
Easter Tea Towel Pillows Steps
1. Iron the tea towels to remove the fold lines.
2. Fold both tea towels in half width wise. If you’re concerned with the edges slipping, definitely pin the two edges together.
3. Starting on the folded edge, sew a straight seam 1/4 inch from the fabric edge. This just happens to be the rightmost edge of the sewing foot, so it makes it easy to keep the seams straight.
4. Sew three sides of the towel, leaving the fourth side open.
5. Fill the pillow with Poly-fil.
6. Pin the fourth side together and try to keep the Poly-fil from peeking out.
7. Sew the fourth edge to seal off the filler.
8. Repeat everything for the second tea towel.
That’s it! How easy was that!? These Easter Tea Towel Pillows are the perfect project for those of you learning to sew and a quick, fun idea for you sewing experts. I also love that I don’t have to measure or cut any fabric. If you’d prefer for your pillows to be larger, you could just buy two sets and sew the same back to back, or in the case of a design like this, make the stripes one side and the bunny the other. You really do have so many options. Target isn’t the only store to make seasonal tea towels. Or let’s say holiday themed pillows aren’t your thing, you could find some of the traditional large center stripe tea towels and make some pillows perfect for farmhouse decor. What kind of tea towel pillows would you make?
