My husband and I were invited to a wedding and I thought I should make something really special for the happy couple. So I had bought these chevron place mats at TJ Maxx and realized it would make a perfect pillow.
The best thing about using place mats is that you don't have to hem the edges so all you need to do is sew around it leaving an opening for pillow stuffing and finish sewing it shut. If you're not a sewer then a glue gun can also handle the task.
I had stenciled one side of the pillow with the word "TONIGHT" and the other side with "NOT TONIGHT."
However, if I would have made one for myself to go onto my bed then one side would say "TONIGHT" and the other side of the pillow would say "TOMORROW" and it will remain on "TOMORROW". You know what I'm sayin?! :)
On a side note the burlap flower with a vintage button is also a DIY project and that will be a later post.
