Place Mat pillows remake, Guest Contributor

14 April 2010

Our Guest Contributor today is Meaghan from Unexpected Grace.  She has been working on a great "Renters Challange" series, with great advice and ideas.  You should check out her blog.  Here is Meaghan's project:

I am loving me some lazy Saturday. Ross is at the UK vs. Auburn basketball game (he is a diehard UK fan) its raining and I am enjoying every minute of me time. Not job searching, cleaning, or studying. Instead I have made some fabulous pillows.

During a trip to Pier 1 I found a fabric that pretty much sums me up. It was love at first site. Unfortunately, I had no need for placemats. However, there was a table runner to replace my Christmas one on the buffet table. Then it hit me.... I can make pillows from place mats!

Lucky for me the placemats were made using two pieces of fabric. I ripped a tiny hole in the seam binding the two pieces. Then I stuffed the inside with some leftover polly-fill I happened to have on hand and used some fabric glue to bind back the tiny hole. The table runner ended up only costing me $6.00 and the two placemats were $2.48 each. What a steal! 
I placed the pillows on some extra chairs given to me by my mom in our "dining room". The new fabric really helps to separate or living and dining spaces.

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

This is such a great idea!
Fabulous no sew pillows for 2.50!

This is a fabulous example of a placemat pillow. Love it. I made a few of these last fall and even made some Christmas pillows out of holiday placemats and gave them to friends. Love the fresh, spring colors on this one! Here's one I made last fall:

This is such a good idea! I've heard of so many things you can do with place mats. I've heard of purses but this is so neat. Thanks so much!

I love Pier One placemats. On a recent trip, I found four and made them into some fun summer totes. But, now I gotta try this!
