Purchase 2 or more placemats, embroidery thread, buttons, sewing machine, and poly fiber
for this project.
A little bargin shopping turns into a neat crafting experience. Made a visit to Pier 1 and found these nice
embroidered placemats for under a buck (.98). I was thinking to myself what I am going to do with these. My first thought was to make a table runner, that didn't work... So, I googled a bit and found nothing to my liking. The only thing out there was making your own placemats or turning placemats into a purse. Didn't want to do that. A bright light came on and I said "let's try making a throw pillow."
I will only give written instructions and pointers for this project.
Let's get to crafting:
Place two placemats together (right sides facing each other).
If you are super creative. You can design the front of the pillow using buttons, yoyos, hand embroidery, etc. I had fun with this project.
