Pretty Placemat Pillow

Before (a placemat from Big Lots):100_5963



I just love my new pillow – a few buttons, rick-rack, filler, and thread.  For less than $5.00 I have a cute, one-of-a-kind summer pillow! 

I'm linking to these fun parties this week, so click on the link here, here, and here to see what everyone else has been working on. See you next Friday!!


  1. Susan - I love your new summer pillow! That red rick rack added a sweet touch. Nice!

  2. very cute Susan! I am also a big fan of rick rack.

  3. Frugal, crafty, and charming! Great idea for a one-of-a-kind item! Yes, I too am a fan of rick rack; it was still a fashionable trim when I was learning to sew one hundred years ago. I love it! You are like my Mom - you both know how to envision a project and have a good eye for taste and possibilities. Beautiful job, Susan!

  4. So sweet! I love the additions you made. The ric-rac is just too stinkin cute!

  5. As you already know that I think this is just fantabulous! I love it and really wish I stop in at your garden and share a glass of ice tea with you so I could see this in person. Great job!

    Hugs from Holland ~

  6. Oh, how cute this came out. I love it. My
    Granddaughter would love these placemats. I need to go to big lots to see if they have them.
    Great job and enjoy your iced tea and pillow.

  7. How cute! I love it Susan. :)

  8. This pillow is TOO cute! Where are you going to put it?
