Placemat Pillow

Supplies Needed:

  • 2 fabric placemats (I got mine from Home Goods)
  • Thread, I used waxed thread (This link is my Amazon referral link)
  • Needle
  • Stuffing
  • Scissors


I first ironed the placemats. Then you will want to turn the top placemat over on top of the second placemat. We will sew the placemats and then leave a gap so that we can turn it right side out.

I used waxed thread for this project, but you could use regular thread as well. You will want to have a knot at the end of the thread and pull the needle and thread in and out of the side of the placemats. You could also do this with a sewing machine, but I am hand sewing because I do not have a sewing machine. Sew around all the sides of the placemat.

You could also weave the fabric in and out with the needle to sew faster and then just pull the needle through.

Once you make it all the way around the placemat leave a gap for you to reach in and pull the pillow right side out. Do not cut the thread because you will need it to sew the gap closed.

I reached in and grabbed the corner opposite from where the opening is. Once the pillow is right side out you can use a pencil or marker to poke the corners on the inside to be sure they are fully turned out.

Then you can stuff the pillow with poly-fil (stuffing). Once the pillow is filled with stuffing, you can then sew the gap closed. I folded in the ends and then sewed the gap from the outside. Make a knot when you are finished.
