Back when we took over Jennifer's office, one of our projects was to make a pillow for her desk chair. Since we clearly love making pillows out of kitchen items (demonstrated here and here) it only made sense to transform a $4 placemat [from Target] into a pillow. So, take a journey with us as we demonstrate how to transform something from flat to phat. <------ yup, I really just said that.
Double Sided Placemat
Step 1. Rip the seam of the placemat, approximately half way down 1 side. I've made a silly little diagram for you.
Step 2. Fill the placemat with pillow stuffing, as full or light as you want (but we suggest full). Pull the stuffing apart as much as possible before filling it to ensure a lumpy-less pillow.
Step 3. Hand stitch the open seam. We recommend sewing a slip stitch.
