If I ever wondered where I get my crafty side from, this weekend solved the mystery. My mom bounced into the kitchen and announced she was going to make some pillows. I of course grabbed my camera and followed knowing I could put her creation on my blog. She made these really cute pillows. They are made from place mats we purchased at an estate sale a few weeks ago. The project literally took her ten minutes total.
2 place mats
Step 1- Start with two place mats.
2. Line them up with the decorative side facing outward on both sides. (One of these days we will get some sort of table to sew on instead of using the floor).
3. Sew three of the four sides together.
4. Insert pillow.
5. Sew the final side together.
6. Enjoy your adorable pillow.
This post is clearly dedicated to my mom since she is the one who created the pillows. She literally made them 30 minutes before people arrived at my graduation party. I have to give a shout out to my dad though, he stained the deck and painted the patio all for my party. His do it yourself projects don't often make it on to my blog.
