Easter Pillows

Went to Kohl's the other day, and found some really fun appliqued placemats.  Making pillows of of these placemats was done quit a bit, and linked up by several people to the different link parties.  Here is a tutoral on how to create these fun easy pillows: Easy Placemat Pillows by Meredith at Heardmont. 

I have to admit though... all I did was use a seam ripper to undo about 4 inches of stitching, stuffed the placemats, and then restitched using mathcing thread.  Took about 5 to 10 minutes to create each pillow.  $2.50 per placemat and half of a $3.00 - 12 ounce package of poly-fil = less than $5 per pillow.  Making this a thrifty way for you to add some festive holiday pillows to your living room.

I really like the peaking bunnies!  While checking out the Easter placemats I also picked up a very cute St. Patrick's (70% off = $1.00) and a fun Valentine's placemat.  I figure these can store flat until next year, and then get 'stuffed' just before the holiday.

placemat pillows for over 6 months now, LOL}

  2. They are really cute pillows. Love the colors, easter and spring at the same time!

  3. What a cute idea! I love the egg shaped one.

  4. Great idea! I just picked up some Kohl's kitchen towels yesterday. Love their seasonal stuff. I've used their placemats before to make kids aprons. They turned out really cute.

  5. Love the egg and those bunnies, TOO CUTE! Thanks for linking to Fabric Tuesday :)


Thank you for taking the time to read this post. I love reading your comments, and enjoy returning the favor {even if it takes me a while to return it, LOL!}.
