To make a pillow out of placemat, you will need a linen placemat that is double layer.
Sorry, I forgot to take pic of the placemat :)
step 1: carefully rip out the seam at one end of placemat or in the middle, don't rip too much just enough that you can put your fist through.
step 2: you will need a stuffing to fill your placemats and make pillow. I had old thin standard bed pillow that we were not using anymore so I ripped that pillow and fluffed the stuffing before inserting in to placemat. I ended up using half of the stuffing so I still have some to make another placemat pillow :)If you need to buy stuffing you can always get at craft stores like Joann.
Step 3:Stitch the hole of your fluffy pillow with needle and matching thread. I did not have blue thread so I used black one but I guess its not noticeable and If you are too lazy to stitch I think hot glue will also work, try it and let me know :)
Step 4: You are done so sit back, relax and enjoy your pillow and if you are too tired after making an easy peasy pillow take a nap.
So do you have any placemat pillow? if not, are you inspired to make some? I know, I will be always looking for good placemats to make pillows :)
Rectangle place mats also can turn in to beautiful lumbar pillow.
P.s. I have a beautiful home tour coming up later this week...stay tuned!!
