Admittedly, this is a slight reboot, and those of you who already saw me do this in April can change the channel. The truth is, I got some more of these great placemats for $1.50 on clearance, and well, they needed to get stuffed. So there.
Start with placemats that are double layered. These were from Target, on big time clearance. SCORE!
With a stitch ripper, carefully open a seam between the layers about 6 inches wide.
Separate the layers, stuff and pin the opening.
Hand stitch shut using tiny stitches to mimic the original.
Toss them on your couch for a splash of color!
Imagine how quickly you could whip these up seasonally for a song.
