Put old cocktail napkins or handkerchiefs to good use as a treasured ring pillow.

June 09, 2015
  • Two antique cocktail napkins or handkerchiefs
  • Polyester fiberfill
  • Needle and thread
  • Satin-center organdy ribbon
  • Antique brooch


  1. Fold one corner of one of the napkins or handkerchiefs toward the center. Beginning at the top of the fold, pinch and gather toward the center to form a heart shape. Repeat with the second napkin or handkerchief.
  2. Sew the napkins or handkerchiefs together with right sides facing, leaving an opening along one side.
  3. Stuff the pillow with polyester fiberfill through the opening; hand-stitch the opening closed.
  4. Form a bow with the ribbon, leaving two long tails. Hand-stitch the bow to the front of the pillow and pin the brooch on top. Tie the rings onto the long ribbon tails.
