Thank God it's thrifty Friday, Friends--the last one of the year! It's Christmas clearance time and I have an easy, thrifty project to share. You will need two placemats and I bet you can find them at least 50% off, like I did at Target...
I stitched them together around the very outer edge, leaving the bottom edge open for the pillow form.
Next, I stitched around the silver design edge, again leaving the bottom edge open.
Before inserting the pillow form, I trimmed the extra fabric from the napkin, turned under a hem and pressed. If you use two placemats, you won't need this step, go ahead and add your pillow form. I had a 12" x 16" pillow on hand. Be sure to keep an eye out for these at thrift stores, especially if you're like me and hate to "stuff" ;) Once your pillow is inserted stitch the openings, first at the design edge closest to the pillow and then at the outer edge. It will look something like this...
Now just find a home for your pretty new pillow!
Until next time, happy hunting!
