How to make pillows out of placemats.

by Melissa

I love accent pillows. They are a great way to add a touch of holiday or seasonal flair to your home. The problem is they can get expensive fast. Even the discount stores like TjMaxx and Ross still have them priced at $15-$25 a piece. Today though I am going to share with you a great way to save some money, only a smidge the price of regular pillows. How you ask, by making placemat pillows.

Looking for an easy and inexpensive way to bring some holiday cheer into your home? Try making one of these awesome placemat pillows.

These placemat pillows are quick and easy to make. They require less than 30 minutes and if you are a quick stuffer and hand sewer less than 10.

Directions

  1. Use a seam ripper to remove about half the stitching along one edge of your placemat.  Just enough room to fit your hand in.
  2. Fill your placemat with polyester fiber fill and fluff.
  3. Hand stitch your placemat closed.

I have also made a no-sew placemat pillow in the past too. This method works great if you aren’t handy with the needle and thread or find a placemat that isn’t double fabric.

I saw your pin randomly on Pinterest and realized these look familiar, I made pillows from the exact same target placemats last year too!
