We saw these adorable table runners at TJ Maxx and we immediately wanted them. We did not want a table runner so we decided to do something else with them! Check out this easy DIY Pillow project that will give you the cutest Shabby Chic Queen Bee Pillow set.

We Purchased the table runner from TJ Maxx for $5.99.

Found these 12″ x 16″ pillows at Walmart for about $4.00.

First thing you are going to do is cut the table runner into three equal parts, approximately 30 inches each.

Fold each cut piece in half.

Using your sewing machine stitch the two sides completely closed and stitch the remaining opening about a third closed. You want to leave a section open so you have a place to stuff the pillow in. Check out the image below for a visual. We used a Singer Heavy Duty sewing machine that you can find here!

Take your pillow and fold it in half

Stuff the pillow in the remaining opening.

Lastly, you are going to close the opening and sort the inner pillow to perfection.

This gave a total of 3 pillows, 2 printed and one plain. We just love how they came out! If you give this project a try we would love for you to share yours in the comments! Happy pillow making!
