Easiest Pillow Project Ever!

I saw this last night on one of the blogs I follow and had to make one today. It literally took maybe 10 minutes and is the easiest thing you will ever make, hands down. Plus it is a cheap alternative to going out and buying new pillows. What is the secret, you ask?  You're not going to believe it....

The secret is .....

Placemats! That's right, I said placemats! Of course I had some on hand since I have been making my placemat purses, but you know I'm going to go out today and look for more that will make great pillows. Here is my finished pillow:
Is this not the smartest idea anyone has ever come up with??? I had one of those "why didn't I think of that???" moments when I saw this! I found out how to make mine here, but I'm sure there are probably more out there in blogland. All you need is a placemat and some fiberfill... that's it!!

Here is what the back of the pillow looks like:
My sister has been wanting me to make her some pillows, so I'm heading out to the stores to try to find some placemats that match her decor.... oh, and to pick up some more fiberfill... you will use quite a bit for one pillow.

If you make one of these, please let me know, I'd love to see how yours turn out!
