Placemat to Pillow DIY


How to turn a kitchen place mat into a pillow. 
 Susie is smack dab in the middle of making
 Maddy a Diva Den (new bedroom).
She challenged me into making her a pillow out
of a place mat they found. 


She just wanted me to add fabric to the back.



I could do that but why?  
This place mat  was double sided with a coordinating fabric.
Perfect!

So here you go... DIY
Find a place mat that has a backing. 
Take a seam ripper and take it apart at one end.

(see below)


Stuff your pillow insert into place mat.


Close the end with small whip stitches.



And there you have a pillow out of a place mat.


It takes more time to pick a placemat that to do this DIY.
Next time you are on the hunt for a cool little pillow ... maybe a stroll down the kitchen aisle can be the answer.

Hey Missy-
Easy as pie and so clever. I made a set in three patterns for my dining chairs. You can't beat the ease or the price!
