No Sew Placemat Pillow
From the Designer: "Do you ever see those super cute placemats that go on sale at then end of Christmas? Or Easter? Or every other holiday or season? You can use those to make super cute pillows. There are some awesome placemats out there and with a little bit of polyfil and some hot glue you can make some quick and inexpensive pillows. If you don't have a hot glue gun and you prefer to sew you can hand stitch the little opening closed at the end."

Whoever came up with the idea deserves a medal! Who would have gueseed that placemats could get this versatile. This tutorial is super easy and anyone could make one, whether you can sew or not.

Oh my gosh I cannot believe that I can do this on my own with no experience other than pulling the trigger on a hot glue gun! I must have been living under a rock, because this is the first time I have heard of using a placemat to create a pillow! This couldn't be easier !! I am so looking forward to adding a bunch of seasonal pillows to my collection!

This placemat pillow is a great idea. I have seen some gorgeous placemats, especially around holiday clearance time, but never enough mats, and some folks don't use them anyway. By making pillows you get the prettiness without having to buy the while set! These would make nice gifts too! I would try to sew them together as that is just me, especially if placed on a sofa, the thread may hold better than glue when it is used a lot for naps and support! Great idea!

Great idea, and tutorial. The pictures make things much easier to understand. My flip flops are notorious for the straps popping out. This would be a great way to up-cycle the bottoms. And, customize them in my color choice, every color. Seems like they would be easier to store too.
