Maggie had been wanting a throw pillow for her bed for awhile, but most of the ones she had seen had a lot of pattern on them and wouldn't go with her bedspread. Then we came across this great idea from Thrifty Decor Chick! A quick, easy throw pillow made from a placemat!
First, find a placemat that matches your decor, making sure its a double-sided one (the one we used was on sale for $1.99 from World Market - can't beat that price!). Using a seam ripper, take out a small amount of the stitching between the two layers. Then stuff the placemat and sew the hole shut!
Could this project be any easier? We think not! And the results are great!
