We just amped up the fun factor with these cute pom pom placemat pillows and they are a cinch to make.

You make a placemat sandwich with pom pom trim in between and no turning right side out!  Simply fill with stuffing and sew shut.

The red and white is classic and bold. But, I loved this simple sewing project so much that I made another set of pom pom pillows for my girls summer bedding.

A pretty set of yellow placemats with light pink pom pom trim will be the perfect accent pillow on their beds.
