And here's the flip side of the blue pillow:
Remember my trip to Anthropologie way back in June? I finally completed my project with the placemats I bought and turned them into pillows for my couch. I owe this nifty idea to my friend Robyn (repurposing maven), who first suggested this when I was lusting after some placemats in Crate N Barrel years ago.
It just could not be simpler. You buy a placemat that is two layers of fabric. Use a seam ripper along one side of the placemat to open a few inches of seam. Stuff it with polyfil. Sew the seam.
I'd like to embellish the yellow/coral/white pillow somehow with an applique. The blue pillow had bias binding, which is a little more tricky, but still easy to get apart and put back together.
