placemats that are sewn with two pieces of fabric (make sure the fabric from the backside is not glued down to the front) most of the Target brand I saw is! $2- $4.00 each
old pillow or poly-fil (I used an old pillow and sacrificed it for this!) free to $2.99
fabric glue or needle and thread (your choice no sew or not!)
seam ripper (can be found in the sewing section of most fabric/ hobby stores)
2 pillows cost me only $6.00 since the placemats I got from Target were on sale!!!
