Easy Placemat Pillows Tutorial


This great Placemat Pillows 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 pillows tutorial.  Now go grab some placemats and start stuffing!
Doesn’t it look Great?
I also really love that mirror!
