I was looking everywhere for pillows for my living room and really didn’t want to spend any money on them. So then I started looking for fabric and that too turned out to be a bust because cute designer fabric can be pricey! Plus, I am not the best at sewing. While shopping at target I ran into these bad boys and thought perfect! They are place mats and run around $2-4 depending on the print.
As you can see they are doubled up (two layers of fabric) and that is what you need in order to make this work. I started in the lower corner with my seam ripper and made a small cut to so I could start stuffing it.
Then I just threaded a needle and ran a running stitch to sew it but up after I was done. This turned out perfect because the place mats already had the cute detail around the edges and let’s face it I am impatient and would never spend the time making an insert like that! I am obsessed with this awesome bird print Target has out right now. Let us know what you think and thanks for stopping by!
