Placemat To Pillow ~ Pinterest Project #2

SONY DSC

The other day, Yvonne from Stone Gable shared a pillow she made out of a placemat she found at Pottery Barn outlet.  I was so inspired that, not only did I pin it, but the same afternoon I read the post I got hubby to go with me for a trip to our outlets.  After walking the whole store and not seeing the placemat I was starting to get disappointed, until at the last minute ~ there it was!

I bought two to make pillows for the chairs we have at our table outside our front door.  A little different from Yvonne’s, I opened stitches at the bottom of the placemat and used the whole placemat as a pillow cover.

I bought a pillow insert as close in size to the size of the placemat {12 x 22}, inserted it, added a little bit of fiberfil to fill the bottom a bit more, and sewed the opening back up.

I added them to the chairs outside and they now complete my outdoor Fall d├ęcor!

Thanks for the inspiration, Yvonne!  They even look good inside and go well with the furniture in our sunroom.

Hey, Kathy! How are you doing?! I love your pillow covers. Such a great idea! The pumpkin pattern is beyond cute. I really like what you did with your fall front porch. The white lantern is super cute. I of course, love the little bunny too. Have a great weekend! ~ Jamie

Gorgeous Kathy, Your porch with the pillow is so inviting. I have done this too with placemats and it is fun and you can find some great patterns for little money.

Love your P flag and the lantern.
Have a great weekend.
Hugs!

A perfect addition to your Fall decor! I love the design on the placemat! I sure wish we had an outlet closer to us! We don't even have a HomeGoods! Love your pillows!

I was a huge fan of many fall things of PB this year and that pattern was one. I wouldn't think about buying fall items this year with building our home. Love this pillow, so pretty!

What a cute pumpkin pillow. It's an old trick to use a place mat or a napkin, but it can sure look good!
Happy Weekend.
