Easiest pillow ever

Have you seen any of the tutorials out there on making pillows from placemats?  It has to be the easiest way in the world to make a pillow.  There's a tutorial here, and if you do a Google search for "pillow from placemat", you'll get may other tutorials! 

Last year, on the day after Christmas, I purchased these placemats for 50 cents each.
They were put away with all the Christmas decorations, and I kind of forgot about them until this year. So anyhow, all you do is unpick about 3 to 4 inches of the seam and stuff with fiberfill.
I made my son and future daughter-in-law help.  I told them it was Christmas craft time.  Doesn't he look thrilled??  :)

I sewed them back up, and here is the finished product -
I think they turned out really cute!
I will be on the look out for more cute placemats.
