Pause for a moment because your life will never be the same. Ready？
A throw pillow made from a fabric placemat.personalized gifts for her ideas
You know the kind I’；m talking about…； the placemat that you wash once and it never looks the same because， well， it needs to be ironed and sometimes that doesn’；t even work？ Can you tell that I’；m bitter？ I’；ve been burned by fabric placemats before. But nowcustom christmas gifts， NOW， I love fabric placemats…； at least， I love pillows formerly known as fabric pacemats.
You can thank my crafty sister-in-law for this genius idea， she rocked my world when she gave me one for Christmas. Even the gals at Crate and Barrel stared in wide-eyed-wonder when I explained what I had in store for this beauty.Check it out after the jump…；
1. Find your placemat. There are lots of great deals. The Crate and Barrel outlet is a good place to look if you have one nearby. Just make sure that the front and back fabric can pull apart inside.
2. Pick a discreet spot for your hole.
3. Using a seam ripper， cut the thread along 4-5 inches， leaving a tail of thread on each side if possible.
4. Pull the thread on one side. The thread from the other side should pop out. Pull it through and tie the two pieces together. Repeat on the other side of your hole
5. Stuff your pillow until firm with fluffed stuffing (to avoid lumps.) Don’；t forget the corners!
6. your hole closed and stitch along original stitching line. I hand stitched mine.
And that’；s it!
Raise your hand if you kind of dread Easter egg decorating every year. I admit that it's not something I have loved in the past for two reasons: 1) it's usually kind of messy (which is NOT my thing and believe it or not, my young girls aren't crazy about messy Easter egg decorating either) and 2) I may be very creative, but I am not even remotely artistic. So you will never see beautiful, hand-painted Easter eggs over here. The closest I have come to “artistic” Easter egg decorating are these dotted Easter eggs that I made a few years agoand these glitter Easter eggs that I made more recently.
