It's not often that I get out to shop around but every once in a while I get to sneak away all by myself, listen to my music, complete a thought, and peruse the isles of Target. Yes that is a great night out as far as I'm concerned. I did this a few weeks ago and I found these little pretties. They are placemats and they were in the clearance section. I have been wanting to add a little yellow to the house to brighten things up for spring so it caught my eye. When I picked it up and realized it was just like a sad empty pillow I thought "well I can do that without even having to rearrange the whole house in order to get the sewing machine out". And then I turned that baby around and saw....
Then I dug around and found this guy
Aren't they perfect and springy!
And then finally today I gathered up a few things like this..Oh I knew I had saved that filler stuff for years for a reason(I was actually nervous that it was going to have little creatures in it it's so old).
I picked at the threads with this
Pulled it apart
Stuffed it and stitched it up !
And now we have these springy cheap little numbers! I went the easiest route possible. I am sure you could add a zipper easily and put pillow forms in but it would be so simple to just do the same process again if I ever need to wash them(which I am sure I will) so it just wasn't worth the effort. Oh and I don't know how to sew in a zipper yet..maybe someday!
