I may have gone a little pillow crazy again. In addition to fabric pillows I showed you guys recently, I’ve made a few unusual pillows in the past: a tea towel pillow, argyle sweater pillow, and placemat pillows. Well call me crazy, but I’ve made another placemat pillow.
I just couldn’t help myself when I saw this nautical print placemat for under $1 at the Christmas Tree Shops.
But it gets even better, the other side of the placemat has this great antique looking nautical map.
How awesome is that map! So I simply unstitched a portion of the pillow and filled it with polyester fiberfill (bought at AC Moore- with a coupon of course). I sewed this bad boy back up and in a matter of minutes I had this amazing nautical antique map pillow.
Doesn’t it look fantastic? I love nautical and beach themed stuff, so this print is right up my alley.
I can’t wait to put out my summer décor, l think this pillow will look great along with it.
The other side of the pillow looks nice too and has a fun nautical look.
I’m really happy with how this pillow turned out. I find so much great stuff at the Christmas Tree Shops. Do you have a favorite store for home décor goodies?
I'm linking this project up to Tatertots & Jello, Beneath My Heart, 320 Sycamore, House of Hepworths, Delightful Order, Embracing Change, Rad Crafter, and Thistlewood Farms.
