The Cozy Red Cottage: Placemat makeover

Placemat makeover

This was seriously a super easy project and I love the results.

I ran across this placemat in Target and knew I had to have it. There was only one so I thought I could use if for a purse of something. When I got home I just couldn't cut it and I didn't want to interrupt the design because I love it to much.

So I ripped out some of the seam and stuffed it. I then sewed it back up. Luckily the entire thing is all top stitched so you can't even tell.

My finished Pillow!


I have a few more placemats waiting for a makeover-maybe they will also become pillows.

  6. SWEET idea!! I've seen people sew two together before, but I never would have thought about just opening up a seam and stuffing it. That pillow would have cost you at least 10 bucks! Nice work!!
