Here are the supplies you'll need:
1. A double-sided place-mat (the blog that I was inspired by used the exact same place-mat from Target so if you've seen this blog and you know what I'm talking about, please send me the url - thanks!)
2. A bag of pillow stuffing
3. A seam ripper
4. Embroidery needle
5. Floss to match your pillow
First things first, start ripping out your seam that is holding the front piece of your place-mat to the back piece. You'll rip enough out for you to stuff the pillow.
Here is where you can start filling that bad boy up with some pillow stuffing. I worked with the stuffing while I was sticking it in the pillow to try to even it out as much as possible.
Once your pillow is as stuffed as you'd like it, then you can take pins and secure the front piece to the back piece almost in the same location where you'll hand-stitch up the hole.
Once you've pinned the front and back together you can go through with your embroidery needle and hand-stitch up the hole you were using to stuff with.
And viola! Step back and enjoy how beautiful your creation is!
Lastly, you'll have to figure out which room in your home will be graced by this beautiful little pillow's presence...I'm having a hard time with that as we speak :).
Thanks for listening to me pretend like I know what I'm doing!
