If you haven’t checked out the collection yet, you have to see it. I think I need one (or two) of everything. Like this doormat, these striped napkins, this wreath, etc. It is like Joanna Gaines crawled into my brain and stole all of my neutral lovin’ home decor ideas. And then made a home decor line with them. *wink*

X Pattern Throw Pillow

Placemat Price Comparison

If you come across a cute fabric placemat that you love, chances are you can make it into a throw pillow. (I’ve done this before and it is one of the easiest and cheapest ways to get a stylish pillow for your space.)

Here’s what you’ll need to make your own:

double sided fabric placemat | seam ripper | cotton batting | needle & thread

To start, take a seam ripper and pull out the stitching on one side of the placemat, about 4 inches long. (Or just big enough to slip your hand into.)

Using a Seam Ripper

Next, stuff the pillow! (I decided to go the cheap route and just pulled apart an old bed pillow to use as stuffing.) Fill that puppy up until it is sufficient to your liking.

Finally, it is time for a little sewing. Using a needle and thread matching the pillow color, hand stitch the opening closed.
