* Seam ripper
* Thread that matches the place mat
* Polyfiber fill
1) I got my handy seam ripper and ripped out the middle part of the seam on the side. I only took the seam out of the middle part of the side (instead of ripping out the entire seam) so that it would be less for me to stitch back up.
2) I then took some polyfiber fill that I already had and just stuffed away until I got the firmness I wanted. (If you have to buy polyfiber fill, it's fairly cheap. I bought a big bag for about $6 and I've already made 4 pillows with it and still have some leftover).
3) After I filled it, I just sewed up the opening using a needle and thread.
