DIY Spring Pillow Covers From Placemats to Pillows!

Turn place mats into pillows!

While shopping at Ross one day, I spotted these place mats and loved the color and pattern! The price was great too! $7:99 for 4! Of course i'm thinking outside the box knowing I wanted to find fabric to cover pillows I already had and these were perfect!

The fabric is really thick and durable!

Luckily my old covers have zips on them, so I can change them out!

I started by unpicking the seams and luckily the stitching came out easily!

I first added the zip! Sorry, I forgot to take a picture, but it's very easy and instructions come with each zipper!

Then, I pinned the fabric, right sides together and sewed the sides and bottom.

Turn the fabric to right side out and put your pillow form inside!

 I'm using mine for my patio furniture as accent pillows! They work really well with the pillows I already have! Fun, fresh and ready for relaxing outdoors!

Have a wonderful weekend!
Thanks for stopping by!
