Decorative Pillow DIY

DIY no sew pillows and the cost was next to nothing :)
I found these lovely placemats at Target.
I loved the variety of color with the teal that looked great with the Collette I had redone the jewelry armoire in -
And, so I decided pillows that is what they will become.
No sew pillows. These placemats were lined so all I needed to do was just open a corner & stuff it and then close it back up.
The pillows on the bed have both the flowery and the zig zag looking placemats.
I just used my no sew fabric glue. I first cut the flowery placemat down a little less than the zig zag, glued them together leaving an opening to put stuffing in. Once the glue was completely dried, I stuffed. I then glued my little opening. Once that was dry I had some green color jute ribbon and I just glued it along the edge of the flowery placemat.
There is a small pillow on the rocking chair...I just took one of the zig zag placemats & folded in half and glued.
Total cost - 3 flowery placemats at $3.99/each, 3 zig zag placemats $3.99, jute ribbon I had, glue I had, stuffing I had (actually lots of it from the pillows that came with our couches), my time...free. So I got 4 pillows for $7.98.
The placemats are Threshold by Target.
I saw a pillow that had the same design at our Target for $24.99. I think mine are much prettier :)
Don't forget to go to this post & enter your chance to win a QUART of Maison Blanche paint (color of your choice). I have used this paint on so many of my projects...I just love it so much. It's so easy to use & always turns out just beautiful!!
It is beautiful out today so think while the little one is napping I will try & read a book on the deck....
