This is a sweet dream of an idea, if we do say so ourselves. We made these easy ring pillows from one of our favorite party go-tos: Sferra linen cocktail napkins. The wide hem is just the right size for a line of Dritz's Stitch Witchery adhesive tape, which bonds fabric together when you iron it.

  • "Festival" cocktail napkins in colors of your choice
  • Dritz Stitch Witchery heavy-duty tape
  • Iron
  • Cotton batting
  • Magna-Tac 809 glue

  • Needle and thread (optional)


  1. Apply a line of Dritz's Stitch Witchery to three sides of one napkin, stack another on top, and iron to fuse those sides together.
  2. Add cotton batting, seal the last side, and craft-glue a ribbon to the center for securing rings.
  3. Feeling ambitious (but not too)? Grab a needle and some contrasting thread and make a simple stitch in the existing window-panel hem, as on the black rendition shown here.
