We moved into an apartment about 2 months ago and I've been slowly making it home, one craft project at a time. Here's how I made two simple pillows.
-I had two double-sided placemats that matched the general color scheme of my life/living room, green and blue.
-I carefully used a seam ripper to seperate the front and back. opened them a few inches, enough to fit my hand through.
-Then I stole stuffing from a pillow that I was not so fond of.
-I Stuffed the pillows pretty full cuz hubby is hard on things and I didn't want them to go flat. Then I pinned the edge shut to keep the seams even and sewed them closed trying to match the original thread used.
viola! sooo quick and I got the placemats for like 50 cents and the old pillows that I used the stuffing out of were free. I love them.
