Yeah. Some places are proud of their pillows, people.
Then, this past weekend, I found a gorgeous placemat in the summer section at Target. It's a thick canvas material, double sided, and only $2.99! Rather than see a placemat, I saw a pillow waiting to be stuffed... and thus the Placemat Pillow tutorial.
What You'll Need:
Polyfil (or stuffing of choice)
Needle and coordinating thread (or sewing machine, if that's how you roll)
Step 1: Take the seam ripper and open up about 4 inches along one of the sides.
Step 2: Stuff to your heart's content. (I know... ridiculously easy right?!)
Step 3. Close seam with straight stitch on machine or backstitch by hand. I chose to use my machine, so I pushed the stuffing to the far opposite side to help keep my seam line straight while sewing.
I also left the thread line from aforementioned seam-ripping as a guide so my new seam lines up with the previous one.
Step 4: Fluff and enjoy your new $2.99 pillow!!
Now, go make one... and email me the link if you do so I can enjoy your fabulous pillow too~
