Last year I found some clearance placemats that I absolutely loved. The problem is I have way to many placemats already and what I was supposed to be shopping for was pillows. That’s when I realized that this particular placemat was double layered. Why couldn’t I just make it into a pillow?!?
2 placemats $2.50
Pillow filling (I used a village snow roll I had bought on clearance!) $1.25
Needle and Thread or Fusing tape
Step 1: Make a small slit in the back of the placemat.
Step 2: Stuff in your filling. Make sure to tear your filling into small pieces before stuffing. If you shove in large chunks your pillow will be lumpy! (Tip: You can use a wooden spoon to help push the stuffing into the corners for a better shape.)
Step 3: Sew the hole closed with a needle and thread or place a piece of fusing tape on the inside edge of the hole and iron closed.
Step 4: Enjoy your pillow!!!
