Making a Cute Pillow Using a Placemat

I've made pillows out of dishtowels, placemats, grain sacks and drop cloths.  (Yes, I have a lot of pillows!)  :)    Making one from a placemat is the easiest way! 
Find a placemat that you love.  Make sure it has two layers.  I found four of these at Kohl's on clearance and paid $4 for all of them.
Pull the thread from about 4" on one side.  (enough to fit your hand in) 
Fill with batting. 
Sew up 4" where you pulled the thread, either by hand or with a machine.
Woohoo!  A new, cute pillow!

Thanks for your visit!
