Hello dear friends!
I hope you are all doing well.

It is finally starting to feel a bit like Fall time in Texas.
Although we are still having very warm days, we have woken up to weather in the mid 50's for a couple of days now and the humidity is much lower than normal.
We are enjoying it while we can! :) 

My days have been busy lately, but in those few rare moments I don't have anything to do, I have been finishing a few fall decor items for our home.

Today I want to share some pretty simple and cute fall pillows I made for our back porch.

These pillows are nothing more than some fall placemats I bought at Walmart for $1.88 each.

They are reversible and they have a similar finish to outdoor fabric and they repel water, so they are perfect to 
display on the porch.

These were the easiest project ever.
Using my sean ripper, I made about a six inch opening on the bottom of each placemat.

Filled up each placemat with poly fill I already had and when they were fluffy enough, I sew the opening closed 
by hand. You could also use some hem iron on tape.
You can find this poly fill at Walmart for about $3.00 a bag.

And that is it! Super simple.

I made four pillows to give the outdoor furniture on the porch a little color.

I am still working on decorating the back porch.
Now that the weather is not so hot, I am ready to buy some fall flowers.
I will share the update soon.

I probably won't get a chance to blog again this week so I want to wish you all a wonderful weekend.
Thank you for stopping by!


  1. That is so clever and very pretty. I never thought of that. I will be on the look for some placemats next time I make pillows.

  2. Thanks so much for the instructions on how you did this! I am going to get a seam ripper! I don't sew but could certainly do this. I LOVE the fabric and print! Have a beautiful weekend.

  3. How adorable! And you sure can't beat that price.

  4. Great pillows, Maria!! And love the price!

  5. Placemats? Girl, you are super clever! I love these pillows! And thank goodness we've had a slight dip in the humidity levels here in Texas. Enjoy your weekend!

  6. Perfect. You did a great job. The pillows are lovely. Walmart always has THE BEST placemats. I buy their vinyl ones for outdoors, too, and they are just great...lots of choices. Hope you have a great weekend.xo Diana

  7. Oh my gosh I would never have that of that! Love it!

  8. Those pillows look terrific and no one would think they were placemats! Thanks for the instructions - might even be simple enough for this non-crafty, non-sewer to do!
