Last Minute Gift or Decoration Idea

Yep, it’s another placemat pillow. I think i’ve made about 9 of these now, but they make a perfect last minute gift for someone or decoration for your home. Just start with a pretty place mat, open a seam large enough for your hand to fit through, stuff it, then sew the seam back up.

This one is going in Amanda’s room. The other pillow is a placemat too.

I bought this one after Christmas last year. It was on clearance for only .50 cents.

It makes a quick and cute addition to the living room.

Have you made a placemat pillow yet? It’s so simple, you have to try it.

Look for Christmas decor starting to go on clearance now. ShopKo now has 70% off most of their Christmas and 50% off the rest.

    What a great idea! I turned that exact same placement (gotta love Target) into an apron with a little quilt binding.

    this is brilliant! I’ve been looking for cute throw pillows that don’t cost too much, and this is a perfect idea!

    I made a bunch of these last-minute for my sister-in-law. I love them! I can’t wait to find some placemats for myself.

    I really like this idea. Thanks for sharing your creativity to those of us who got missed when God passed
    out the creativity gene! I’ve always said I could do most any thing I wanted looking at what someone else had dreamed up, but a creative idea of my own — fagedabotit! I do have one question, though — what did you use to stuff the pillows? Thanks again.

    i always forget about this craft – pinning it so I can find it easily! I bought a cute pumpkin tapestry pillow last year at Kohl’s for less than a dollar. All I need is the batting. (:
