Things you will need...
You can find poly-fil at any craft store. I found this huge bag of poly-fil at Walmart for eight dollars.
You can re-sew the edge that you cut, but I used this heat-n-bond tape to seal the edges back up. All you need is an iron to activate the heat tape.
I found these place mats at Big Lots for only $1.50. I got cheap ones the first time because I didn't know how good these would turn out. Just make sure again that they have two sides.
So here it is cut open & stuffed with poly-fil & ready to be sealed back together.
Finished two pillows on my bed. O, and here is the sneak peek of our furniture I re-did.
A teal pillow I made for our living room.
I hope you love this idea, let me know what you think! I am anxious to try this again with different fabric place mats. These are not my favorite, but pretty good for my first attempt! I might try sewing the next ones as well because the heat-n-bond was a little messy at times. Anyways, let me know if you try this!!!
