Making Pillows from Christmas Placemats

wp-1480562963179.jpg

 A few years ago, I bought these tapestry placemats from the Dollar Tree. 

I bought them because I thought they’d make cute Pillows.  And then to be perfectly honest, I put them up and forgot about them. 

I went to my grandmother’s house for Thanksgiving and asked her if she’d help me make the pillows.

 We first  put the pillow cases together, with the backs facing out, and pinned them. 

We sewed them together, leaving just enough opening to stuff the pillow. 

Then,  we turned them right side out and stuffed them. 

And sewed the opening shut by hand.  I couldn’t be more pleased with the result. 

Best of all, it only cost about $7 for Polyfill.
