We have a ton of pillows around here but there’s always room for more. Especially since my littlest is currently all about making pillow forts e.v.e.r.y single day. So when I saw these adorable placemats on clearance at Target for only $1.48 each, I figured why not add a few more pillows for her to use?
- Placemats (one for each pillow if it is double sided and two for each pillow if it is not)
- Sewing machine or hand sewing needle
- Coordinating thread
- Seam ripper (for double sided placemats)
- Pins (optional)
Sew the opening shut by hand or using a sewing machine. Trim thread strands. When using the sewing machine, push the stuffing away from opening and put needle as close as possible to left side. You will need to hold onto the pillow with both hands while going through the sewing machine. Make sure to back stitch at the beginning and end of your sewing.
Then that’s it! These would be easy to embellish with tassels or even iron-ons (before sewing). I thought the one with the flowers would be perfect to add a cool phrase onto. If you make some, share using #happytogetherbyjess.
Happy weekend! -jess-
