Placemat Pillows

If you are looking for a quick and easy update to your pillow decor, look no further than the placemat section of your local Target, Pier 1, or Home Goods. 

Find a double-layer placement, pick up some poly-fil from your local sewing/craft store, go home and make some pillows.  

I've seen numerous bloggers share this simple, creative idea; so, I had to try it myself.  Find this idea here, here and here. Go ahead, try it.

Here are my recent additions to my pillow addiction via Target's placemat aisle.

Making these pillows only requires a seam ripper, needle, thread, stuffing, and placemat.  Simply rip open a small section of seam, stuff with poly-fil (be sure to push into the corners), and stitch the seam closed using a color-matched thread.  This idea is even for the NON-SEWERS because the stitches are barely seen.
