Making it Monday!

Technically it is still Sunday night! I forgot to go to bed again! Just kidding,It is only 12:20, so I still have half an hour until my brain freezes up and my fingers stop moving.

Oh, this is Making it Monday! I am going to show you how to make Christmas pillows for about 1/3 of the price in the stores, using Placemats!

Placemats are two sided, so I just split the seam between the sides,and stuffed away!

Give it a whipstitch to close it up, and fluff it up. Easy as Pie!

I have a funny story about the plaid pillow. but I guess I was wrong about having a half hour before my brain freezes up. I uploaded the pictures in the reverse order I wanted to post them, so I squished them all up and changed the order. I hope I un-squished them to the right size! I am tired.

I will be linking up to some other blogs tomorrow. Hope you enjoy my Holiday pillows!
