It is not easy to find lined placemats lately but today was my day! Un-planned trip to Home Goods on my way to Home Depot was it! Couldn’t wait to go home and do it and write it all about it!

So let’s begin!Use your Scissors to remove the stitching from a small section of the placemat, creating a small hole.

Once you get all of your filling in, place a small line of hot glue on the seam to seal the fabric back. I held the fabric together for few seconds after I closed the edges to make sure it sealed good. You can’t even tell that the seem was ever ripped.

And You’re done! Seriously. Can you believe how simple that was? With this simple DIY, you can make about 4 pillows for the price of one. I love deals like that!

    Love how they turned out! Very clever idea but how are you planning to wash them when they get dirty? That hot glue will soften and turn loose in your washing machine and the burlap type fabric will ravel making it nearly impossible to fix. I think a better option would be to just hand stitch your hole up and since it's a pretty small hole it would take very little time to close it up properly, then they would wash beautifully letting your enjoy your cute throw pillows much longer.

      That is so true but hot glue is always handy I washed them few times and all I have to do is re-glue it.

    I love this idea but how did you hold the 2 placemats together before you cut the slit and hot glued it?

    I would like to see how you attached tassels. I’m having a problem with that right now...
