How To Make a Bath Mat Throw Pillow

You may remember we went pretty crazy (in a good way) over a bath mat upholstered stool we spotted in a favorite Austin house tour last year. Well, crafty homeowner Chris has tackled another DIY project with another bath mat and we're equally charmed.Chris Stout-Hazard, one half of the Design Hazards team (husband and business partner Roger Stout-Hazard rounds out the pair) has been on a DIY kick lately, and loving the feel and texture that his bath mat stool project did for their home, decided to try to incorporate it again in a new and fresh way.

It seems there's nothing one of CB2's cirrus bathmat's might not look clever on, as Chris proves in this DIY throw pillow using one of them. Its great thick texture would be a gorgeous addition to a couch or chair, but also a scary material to tackle if you're not the world's best sewer. Thankfully, Chris figures out any tricks or kinks for us and lays it all out clearly in a post on their site: Make Your Own Bath Mat Pillow. And though he's used another CB2 Cirrus bath mat, don't get caught thinking that's the only bath mat you could use. Use his simple tips and instructions to work some DIY magic on any bath mat you might love to turn it into a throw pillow that will look fabulous (and probably expensive-looking, too)!
