I’ve gone shopping, looking for gorgeous pillows to adorn my coaches and bed with, only to be disappointed by their $25 to nearly $65 price tags.
Thankfully, falling in love with a gorgeous place mat and not having any use for it led me to an idea.
I found this place mate with beautiful embroidery on sale for just $1. The important things to look for are:
- quality fabric
- unique pattern, embroidery, etc.
Once you’ve found a good place mat, carefully cut a short hole on one size. Make sure it is big enough to fit the stuffing through.
I’ve been able to find relatively inexpensive stuffing at most craft and fabric stores.
I love projects that don’t require me to lug out my sewing machine! Make sure that the pillow is stuffed well and that the stuffing is spread evenly.
THE FINISHED PRODUCT:
Congratulations! You now have a beautiful new pillow, and no one will know that you didn’t spend a huge chunk of change on it.
* I also used this same idea to make the yellow pillow on the left. I love how it turned out!
I hope that you enjoyed this thrifty tip! Share your creations with me in the comments section.
