I loved these monogrammed pillows but gesh are they expensive.
Target had some fantastic placemats and tablecloths on sale for seventy five percent off their Christmas merchandise. I thought I could use two of them for a project.
Whipped out the embroidery program and developed a monogram.
Look how pretty!!
Sewed along the inner stitching to make a flange, leaving a six inch opening. Just follow the line of the placemat.
Sewed again, on the outer edge. You cannot see the pins, but I pinned it carefully matching the placemats. Also, leave the same six inch opening around the outer edge that you sewed for the flange.
Stuffed with polymer filling.
Sewed both openings shut.
Total cost of the project; $.98 for each place mat and $3.00 for polymer filling. Total cost $4.96.
