Jacinda’s placemat pillow was a complete revelation right?! After I read it I realized I had something in the same vein (meaning a two-sided fabric item I never use). What was this item you ask?
…wait for it…
I love this crewel design I got on clearance at Anthropologie forever ago, but it made a rather terrible rug, being all crooked and delicate. When I saw Jacinda’s DIY I realized what its true destiny was meant to be: a pillow for my hammock! The DIY is the same as the placemat pillow (get it here) but I took pics after the jump…
Take one old rug and wash it:
Check it has two sides:
Cut one of ’em open:
Insert two regular old bed pillows and sew it shut:
Gorgeous! Quinn and I miss that hammock.
Another great idea! I never would have thought to recycle a rug as a pillow.
