Pom Pom Placemat Pillows

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.

    That is such a great idea. I have made a purse from one before. I did so when I needed something to match an outfit for a wedding. I like this even better.
