Welcome to the Creative Crafts Collaborative, Edition 9, Recycled Craft Projects! Recycling and upcycling projectshas been a big focus for me this past year. I have been creating new spring pillows from placemats, tablecloths and tea towels. These Upcycled Bunny Placemat Pillows were the perfect addition to my spring decor!
Look for placemats with a lining and are a close woven fabric like a cotton polyester blend. Recycling placemats gives a tailored pillow and is completely a no sew project.
I admit to having a thing for polka dots and bunnies!
This iis a quick and easy project! Carefully cut a slit through placemat back lining only.
Stuff with a quality fiber fill. I use Fairfield World's Poly-fil. Push poly-fil into the four corners first.
Take a piece of 2" wide ribbon an inch longer than slit. Match back of pillow. Use Fabri-tac to glue ribbon over opening. Ta da! You now have an Upcycled Placemat Pillow! How easy was that ?! Often placemats are marked down or check thrift stores to create more custom pillows.
The bunny pillows were in four pretty colors so I could use them in different rooms.
The pink check pillows were another upcycled project from a tablecloth used at a baby shower. I made them in a simple envelope style and used pillow forms from Fairfield World. The cute cat is our Birman @reignofrory on IG! He loves this chair.
Rory also loves this stool in the laundry room which has another recycled or upcycled pillow created from the cutest tea towel! Kitchen linens come in so many pretty and fun prints and patterns, a whole world of thrifty creative and trendy home decor projects! When you want to change them just gently pull off ribbon and unstuff!
