Easter Tea Towel Pillows

Home » Crafts » Holiday Crafts » Easter & Spring Crafts » Easter Tea Towel Pillows

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!

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.

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?

  1. I love seasonal pillows and using pretty tea towels is the way to go. I really like the stitch you used to close the pillow up. It is so pretty. And the bunny pillow has stolen my heart.

  2. I’ve been seeing a lot of tea towel projects popping up on my Pinterest feed. These, though, sooo cute. Love the colors and the bunny. Would be adorable in a nursery no matter what time of year. Great gift idea.

  3. As I was reading your post, I kept thinking about the two throw pillows on my couch that have seen better days (stains, faded) and thought this is a great idea. I would sew three sides and then use sew-on velcro on the fourth so that I could change out the tea towel set for seasons and holidays. LOVE!! Pinned

  4. These came out so cute! I have been seeing the tea towels everywhere! I want to give these a try. I definitely qualify as a beginner at sewing! Thanks for sharing!

  5. Marie, These are wonderful! I want some!! Thanks for showing how easy these are to make. I’m a novice at sewing, but I think I could handle this with ease. Love the bunny applique!! Pinning!

  6. Those are so stinkin cute! I love the little bunny on the gray towel and that they coordinate so well with one another. Such a cute and simple craft. Pinned

  7. These Easter Tea Towel pillows are adorable! I just saw the tea towels today. The dollar spot is also my favorite part and I had no idea it had a name. I need to learn how to sew!
