After Mr. Moore and I adopted a handsome golden retriever,
(notice the jealous cat in the background)
lack of sewing skills came in very handy repairing stuffed toys that came apart at the seams. Over the past two years with our little boy, my hand stitching skills vastly improved.
One day I came across a blog that turned place mats into pillows. With my newly acquired stitching skills, I figured I could easily take a project like this on. All you need to do is pick up a placemat, take out some of the seam, stuff, and restitch. Easy peasy.
I started with 2 for on our ottoman bench…
Then made one for the guest room, two for the living room, one for the other guest room…
You get the picture. I am hooked on the simple sewing project of “making” pillows!!
