I discovered this fabulous idea of turning placemats into pillows on the Bower Power blog. Seriously, what a great idea! I've had my eye out for double sided placemats ever since I saw the article.
I found this very bright placemat at Target for $2.99 and thought it would be fun for Summer. Plus, I kind of have a thing for orange right now.
I took my seam ripper and removed enough stitches, so I could stuff it, then I hand stitched it back up.
I did the same for this cute bird placemat, I found at Pier 1, on clearance for $0.98.
Here's how they turned out.
I think they are pretty cute. I'm excited to make a few more, but first I need to find more placemats.
