One Hour Craft - Placemat Pillowcases


This is just too good to pass up! I saw this idea on a blog a few weeks ago, and as I've been trying to decorate my living room, I decided I needed some different pillows. Well, I found some very cute, very inexpensive placemats at Pier 1. Basically, the directions include 3 steps:

1. get a seam ripper and open the seam just enough to fit your hand inside
2. stuff, stuff, stuff
3. hand sew it back up

It is seriously so easy and satisfying to do a project in less than an hour. And I love them!! It's a great way to spice up any room, and placemats come in a HUGE variety of colors, textures, and patterns. I'm planning a whole bunch more of these babies. For a more detailed tutorial, go HERE!
