But....I would spend $1.00 to make a pillow!!
Go to The Dollar Tree.....buy a $1.00 Christmas placement.
Using a seam ripper.....open the short side seam. (You may need to buy a seam ripper at The Dollar Tree if you don't have one.....do they even sell those there???)
Once I got the seam started, it was easy to open.
Now....if you have a bag of fiberfill, you don't need a large hole. I didn't.....and I'm too cheap to go and buy a bag....(it's the distance thing again!)...and bags of fiberfill are expensive......so I needed to open the entire short side seam.
I didn't have fiberfill, but I did have an old pillow in my closet that I've been wanting to get rid of.....aren't they filled with "fluffy stuff"????
Yes!! Cut apart your pillow.
I just measured my pillow against the placement and trimmed my pillow to fit.
I stuffed it into my placemat......
Now some people at this point may re-sew the seam....but....my sewing machine has been out-of-commission for like 6 years....so it's hot glue to the rescue!
Hot glue your seam closed.....
I have a $1.00 Christmas pillow!! (and a rocking chair in deep need of a new paint job.......)
