How to turn a placemat into a pillow

Materials: Double sided placemat (make sure it has 2 pieces of fabric sewn together), needle and thread, seam ripper, scissors, pillow fill

Step 1: Use the seam ripper to make a 3 inch opening on the bottom of place mat.

Step 2: Use the fill to stuff the placemat. Make sure to fill the placemat to each corner and fill in middle.

Step 3: Use coordinating thread to hand sew the opening at the bottom closed. I used the same type stitch as the placemat.
