Unconventional Craft Pillows

No-Sew Crafts in Minutes

I can sew, I just don’t choose to sew anything if I can avoid it.  These pillows are a cinch to make and you can do it for about $5 per pillow.  If these are going outside, you will need to get a bottle of Outdoor Fabric Spray.  I got my Outdoor Fabric Spray at Amazon.

Placemat Pillows

When you are looking for placemats, you need to get those that have two layers.

  • Take your ripper and open a small hole, large enough to opening made in placematuse for adding the stuffing.

  • Hand stitch the hole you opened, or use iron-on tape to seal
  • If this is an outside pillow, spray it with fabric spray according to spray directions.

That’s it! You can zip these out in an hour or less per pillow.
