You guys, if you came here looking to learn how to make an easy placemat pillow, you’ve come to the right place. 

I grabbed the cutest little Valentine’s Day placemats in the dollar section at Target (but don’t worry, I linked to some alternate options below) and decided to turn them into the CUTEST placemat pillow ever. 

I especially love that this one came with a little heart pocket! I stuck a tiny Valentine’s note in there for O to find.Closeup of cute Valentine's Day placemat pillow!

The great thing about a placemat pillow is that all the decorating work is done for you. Find a cute print and bam, 80% of the project is done! No stencils, no vinyl, no painting….

I know, I really am a genius. You can tell me. 

I think I’m going to put this one on our couch for the month of February, I suspect the kids will get a kick out of being able to leave little notes in the pocket. But hey, if your placemat doesn’t already have a pocket, that would be SUPER easy to cute out of felt and sew on. Probably would only add another five minutes to this quick and easy project!
