My 10 yo son is home from school with walking pneumonia so I couldn't go to the beach today to fill my beach writing orders.
So I saw on I am a Lazy Mom's Blog the idea making a cheap Christmas pillow.
When I was at Target last night I picked up this cloth place mat for $4
Today I grabbed a bag of Polyfil at AC Moore for like $4 or $5
I only opened the place mat stitching enough to get my hand in with some stuffing. I figured the less sewing to close it, the better!
All stuffed and ready to be sew shut.
I just stitched it by hand to close it. I'm far from a great seamstress, but I am lazy and it was easier to just hand stitch the 6 inches then to drag out the dusty sewing machine that I probably shouldn't be lifting anyway due to the herniated disc in my neck!
Now to give it to the kid to make it all nice & evenly fluffy!
