Placemat to Throw Pillow
I'm in the process of re-decorating my living room. Well, I'm a year into the process... I was waiting on finding the right rug, and the right fabric for a chair, and now that I've found both, I'm on my way to getting it done!
I got this laser cut place mat about a year and wanted to turn it into a throw pillow. I wasn't really sure how it would turn out, and I'm still not even sure how much I like it now that it is done. But, at least it's done...
I got a navy blue canvas/cotton and sewed the place mat on it. That was kind of a pain... But, there are a lot of laser cuts out there that don't have so many little pieces which would be easier to do.
I put in a zipper (that I already had) closure (rather sloppily I might add), and stuffed in one of my old pillow forms.
Super cheap throw pillow!
We'll see how long it actually stays in my living room, like I said, the jury is still out...
