I usually don't post during the weekend, but I didn't have the time to upload and edit these pics until yesterday. So, I guess is better late than never. ;)
If you're one my regular readers, you already know about this little feather pillow that you saw in my son's room during the tour of the bedrooms earlier this week.
Well, here's how I usually
turn placemats into pillow covers >>>

So, kind of defeated, I went to look at the beautiful tablescapes my local Target had in store for Thanksgiving, and as soon as I saw that placemat with the cute feathers, I knew it would go perfectly well with the other decor elements in my son's room.
I'm also showing you other placemats I liked from their Fall collection. The plaid one would've been another good choice, but the bedding's already sporting plaid, so, feathers was my choice.
And I love it! It's such good quality placemat, the colors of the feathers are so vibrant, they're painted, but two of them have the central shaft and orange dots beautifully embroidered, giving it lots of texture.
As soon as I got home I began turning it into a pillow case. The first thing you're going to need is a seam ripper to undo those stitches...
And some Velcro. I usually cut the Velcro half lengthwise, since the seams are very small.
And I run some stitches all along the Velcro. I wonder if the sticky Velcro would work in this situation, maybe for those last minute solutions it might be helpful.
The old pillow form was inserted and that's it!
