Throw pillow genius. 

7 Feb

I made new Valentine throw pillows for my couch tonight. They cost $2.99 each (plus the batting I already had).  That’s a cheap pillow!  

This genius tip is all thanks to Mama Leanne.  Years ago, while browsing the aisles of Target, she realized that many of their placemats are two pieces of fabric sewn together with only an outside seam.  Do you know what that means?Take your seam ripper. Open up one of those side seams a couple inches. Stuff the inside with batting. Sew the seam up by hand.  Ta da. A $3, ten minute throw pillow. Seriously. I’ve made Christmas pillows from placemats. Easter pillows from placemats. And now – Valentine’s Day pillows from placemats. Thanks, Target. 

Also. Speaking of Valentine’s Day,  love, and hearts, I’m engaged. TO BE MARRIED. (Say what?!)  That story to follow in the next couple days. ❤️
