Easy Placemat Pillows Tutorial

31 August 2010

This great Placemat Pillow Tutorial was linked to our last party from Meredith at Welcome to Heardmont, I love how they turned out and the way the room looks!

The other day I came across these cute yellow placemats at Target.
They reminded me so much of the colors in our master bedroom that I decided to get a couple and turn them into accent pillows!
I’ve seen tutorials on turning placemats into pillows on several other blogs, but here’s how I did it.
Step 1: Iron your placemats
Step 2: With scissors or a seam ripper, take out the stitches in one edge of the placemat
Step 3: Using your favorite polyester filling, stuff the placemat/ pillow cover
Step 4: Close the seam – I chose to hot glue mine shut (sooo easy)
Step 5:  Admire your new pillows!
Here’s a reminder of what our bedroom looked like before our new pillows.
And here it is now!
I hope you liked the quick and easy placemat pillow tutorial.  Now go grab some placemats and start stuffing!

Doesn't it look Great?
I also really love that mirror!

I saw these place mats at target and I almost bought them! They are adorable. My husband doesn't understand my need for hundreds of pillows on my bed, but I NEED! It looks fabulous.

Boo hoo we don't have a Target. The pillows are very pretty. Placemats are useful for all kinds of things including purses

Wow! Thank you so much for featuring my tutorial! I hope the fact that this is a no-sew pillow solution will encourage others to try it out.

The mirror was a vintage find, but there's more than one in the world. Here's a post I wrote about spotting my mirror's twin on the Silver Screen:

Thanks again for the feature!

Hello.. that's a great idea... Actually tho .. I am here to thank you for the great idea of making your old bathroom mirror into a leaning wall mirror.. I did it. check it out at www.createtodecorate.com... it is one heavy big mirror.. but I love it and it's all thanks to your and your great idea...this pillow idea is a good one too.. I made pillows out of cloth dinner napkins one time .. clearance napkins from Ross.. they turned out very nice. for 99 cents. So Thank you Remodelaholic.! ")
