How To Make A Pillow From Placemats

Have you ever made a pillow from a placemat?

I love to have a pillow at my back when I’m sitting in a chair or on a sofa.

But what I love even more than that is HOLDING a pillow…you know, like holding a fluffy puppy or your favorite stuffed teddy bear.

It is just so comforting to hold a pillow.

I learned that from my mother. She loved to hold pillows too.

I’ve made pillows from tablecloths, spare fabric, sweaters and hand towels.

Any fabric will do.

If it is fabric…the sky is the limit!

And in my opinion, it is one of the easiest ways to add a festive touch for the change of the seasons, to your decor.

I can’t wait to show you the one of the pillows I have planned for Christmas!

You’re gonna love it y’all.

It is soooooo easy to make a pillow from placemats.
All you do is lay two placemats wrong sides together and sew around them…or hot glue them…or safety pin them.
However, you have to remember to leave an opening for filling them with stuffing.
And that’s it!!

Large or small, pillows can be tucked in just about anywhere to spruce things up a bit!
