Christmas Placemat Throw Pillow

If you’ve read my blog for very long, you know I love placemat throw pillows. They are super simple, very inexpensive, and can make any sort of statement that you want.I started a couple of years ago, and now I’ve been trying to make them for more holidays. A throw pillow is an easy accessory for any time of year. I’m not gonna post a full tutorial since I’ve posted them in previous posts, so I’ll include that at the end.



 First, you find a placemat, making sure it’s one with backing. I like the quilted look of this one, and the bright colors, since my baby boy is drawn to them.


Gather your materials- placemat, seam ripper, needle, thread, poly fil.  That’s all you need. Then rip out a seam on the back, I usually do the bottom, and stuff your pillow to it’s desired fluffiness. Sew it back up with coordinating thread and enjoy!


 And stay tuned for more upcoming Holiday Craftiness!!!

    This is cute – I bought 2 but without the backing, so now I gotta find and cut out some coordinating fabric. Yours is so cute!
