Great way to dress up an ocean themed room.  This is a pretty simple project that kids with some minor sewing machine experience could handle.  They can be used as toys, made as a stuffed animal gift, or used to dress up a room.

DIY Pillow Mats - Inspired by Familia

DIY Pillow Mats - Inspired by Familia | Easy Sewing Projects for Kids | Scoop.it
Featured Writer: Leigh Ann Phillips With Summer upon us, we moms are planning the details of Summer vacations.  The balance between keeping the kids happy and taking too much can be difficult.  (Do you like my thinking face?
Leslie Stone's insight:

I think is so creatively smart.  Have your kids every laid out a number of pillows to lay on but the pillows move around leaving gaps under them?  Not really functional as a bed or mat UNLESS you do it this way.  Just think of the cute pillowcase cover colors you could use (I'm thinking some mixes of black, white and pink myself...)
