With Thanksgiving still two weeks away, I haven't started my Christmas decorating yet. I have started getting some things ready, though, and today I'm excited to show you the easiest thing I've made in a long time.
While shopping in Pottery Barn the other day, I spotted these beautiful Christmas placemats for $9.50 each.
These placemats are 2-ply: two pieces of fabric sewn to one another. I simply popped open the seam in the center of the bottom of the placemats:
Then I stuffed them and closed the seam back up. (To be honest, I hot-glued the seam closed; if you're a good seamstress, you could sew them closed.)
That's it! Making them took less than 10 minutes per pillow. And look how pretty they are! I made some for my new sofas in the living room:
And one for the leather chair that sits in the corner of my husband's study.
It's cold outside, so that fire makes me want to cozy up with a good book!
Have you started getting things ready for Christmas decorating yet?
