Do you ever get an idea that you think is brilliant? I am always seeing cute placemats, so I decided it was time to make pillows out of them. I have tons of pillows and yes I need more. This is an easy and inexpensive diy that doesn’t require a sewing machine, now that is perfect.
1. With the seam ripper, rip 2″ on one side of your placemat. If you are filling with an insert, rip one whole side of the placemat.
2. Fill your pillow with your filling. I personally use down inserts for mine.
3. Once your pillow is filled start gluing the edges. While gluing pin the edges together. Once the glue is dry you can remove the pins.
Optional: For another crafty option, you can rip the corners of your pillow with the seam ripper and add pom poms to your pillow. Etsy is a great place to purchase pompoms. I gave a live tutorial on this project on my Instagram account. Go check out my Instagram for daily life on the farm with all the animals and fun projects.

This is the fabric glue I used. Just make sure you are using glue that is permanent. Hot gluing your pillow edge is also an option. I think fabric glue will help adhere better, to get a longer lasting pillow.
You can choose from so many different style options. This isn’t just for the holidays either you can use this diy all year round! My placemat pillow looks perfect with my linen bedding. If you need a good night’s rest, take a look at my custom linens in my shop.

Can you wash these?
Yes, I would do a gentle cycle and air dry. If you want to dry them tumble dry on low.
How to look for the right placemat.
When looking for placemats you will want to make sure there is a seam you can take apart in order to put the stuffing in.
Can I use hot glue?
Of course. But I would just be careful because those things are very hot.
