The Lazy Girls Guide to a Cute New Pillow.

All it takes is 4 simple steps and you too can have a
 lazy girl pillow!

Step one: Buy a placemat that has two pieces of fabric that is stitched all the way around the sides. 
This is really the best part because all of the real work has been done for you.
I got mine on sale at Pottery Barn for $2.99!

Step two: open up a small side section with your seam ripper. 
No picture here because I am lazy.

Step three: Fill it up. I used the stuffing from a bed pillow that got all lumpy after I washed it. 
Again no picture here either, I told you I was lazy.

Step four: Sew up the little hole and admire your new pillow.



I think it took longer to write this post than it did to complete this project!
