Last Minute Christmas Sewing Ideas



I love fun sewing projects that I can finish in an afternoon! I saw this cute placemat at Target and thought it would be perfect for a pillow!

Sewing my Christmas pillow took about one hour...I love a quick project! 

Quick how to:


Cutting:

  • Trim placemat to 12.5" x 16.5" to fit a 12" x 16" pillow form.
  • Cut 2.5" binding strips - Bonnie & Camille Basics Stripe by Moda.
  • Backing fabric for pillow closure- size will vary on based on closure method. 
Prepare Pillow:
  • I fused Pellon Shape-flex interfacing to back of placemat as it was a canvas like material and I wanted to stabilize it a bit.
Backing:

Add binding.....then enjoy your new Christmas Pillow! I'm hoping Target keeps getting such cute holiday placemats as I want to make these sweet pillows for each holiday!


Bonus:

I've been busy sewing this Christmas season and just couldn't toss my Red/Green/White Bonnie & Camille fabric scraps. So my daughter and I placed the strips into plastic clear ornaments! We love these cute and quick ornaments!



Have a Merry Christmas!!!
