I was at Target a few weeks ago and they had some adorable placemats on clearance for a $1.25. So I snagged this one and decided to turn it into a throw pillow for our family room. It's so easy! Just take apart one 3 inch section of the seam and stuff away. You can either hand stitch it closed or use your sewing machine. I hand stitched this one because it was just too fluffy. Make sure to purchase a placemat with a fabric front and back.
