During a trip to Pier 1 I found a fabric that pretty much sums me up. It was love at first site. Unfortunately, I had no need for placemats. However, there was a table runner to replace my Christmas one on the buffet table. Then it hit me.... I can make pillows from place mats!
Lucky for me the placemats were made using two pieces of fabric. I ripped a tiny hole in the seam binding the two pieces. Then I stuffed the inside with some leftover polly-fill I happened to have on hand and used some fabric glue to bind back the tiny hole. The table runner ended up only costing me $6.00 and the two placemats were $2.48 each. What a steal! I placed the pillows on some extra chairs given to me by my mom in our "dining room". The new fabric really helps to separate or living and dining spaces.
Hope everyone has a great weekend!
