I love our flag. The colors are awesome. It's clean and crisp and represents so much! I love decorating with it. I also love things that look like they took a lot of work when they were SUPER easy! Thus, I was thrilled to find this American flag placemat for like $3 that would so easily translate in to a faux quilted throw pillow.
American Stars and Stripes Placemat Pillow
Placemat (from ShopKo)
Use the seam ripper to make an opening about half the width of the side of the placemat.
Stuff tight with Polyfil. Hold opening closed with binder clips and stitch closed using the existing holes from the original thread. Slide the binder clips along as you need more space to stitch.
Find the perfect spot for your cute new American stars and stripes pillow!
