DIY Placemat Pillows

I have been making placemat pillows for years! They are less then $5 to make and super easy! I like placemat pillow because its a fun way to create seasonal pillows quick is inexpensively. And I bet no one else will have them!

How to create a placemat pillow:

Step 1: Placemat Selection
Choose placemats that clearly have two pieces of fabric used. This is the tricky part, many DO NOT.

Step 2: Rip Stitching 
choose any corner of the placemat and with sharp scissors (or stitch ripper) carefully create a 3 inch hole.
Step 3: Stuff It
I reused stuffing from old pillows and stuffed the placemat. Use as much or as little stuffing as you like to create your pillow. I noticed during this step that little hand loved to help!

Step 4: Stitch It
I used just a basic hand stitch to sew my placemat pillow back up but you are welcome to use a machine too!

After its all stitch up, it should look like a pillow! These placemats are from target, so cute!
