Placemat Pillows Tutorial

This tutorial is SUPER easy. So easy that while I was making my placemat pillows I forgot to take pictures of the process. In three easy steps you can be the proud owner of adorable pillow(s) for a fraction of the price.

Placemat(s) that have two layers of fabric
Stuffing {I found a bag that was enough for two pillows of poly stuffing at Walmart for around $3.50.}
Seam ripper
Needle and Thread {that matches your placemat}

Step one: Using the seam ripper to make a small hole {large enough to fit your hand in it} on one side of the placemat

Step two: Stuff the placemat with your stuffing or poly fill

Step three: Using your needle and thread re-sew the hole you created.

Enjoy! See I told you it was super easy.
