Can I make a pillow without a sewing machine?

no sew. You can literally wrap your already covered pillow (or pillow form) up like a burrito, meaning the only thing you have to purchase is fabric from your local craft store. You simply take a square of fabric, place the pillow towards one corner, wrap, tie, and you’re done!

What is the best material to stuff a pillow?

Hungarian goose down (otherwise known as European white goose down) is considered to be the best quality. These down clusters are pure white and larger than most other types. A real down pillow contains down only — no feathers. Frequently “down” is sold as a combination of down and feather fill.

What do you fill throw pillows with?

First, what the pillow insert is stuffed with makes a big difference in how it will look. Ideally, it should be down and feather filled. A mix of 50/50 or 30/70 is ideal. Pillows filled with polyester inserts will be obvious, I have a few of those myself and they just don’t compare.

Can you stuff pillows with old clothes?

If using old towels, linens and clothing, ensure the items are washed prior to cutting them into bits for the pillow stuffing. Avoid denim, because it is a heavy fabric that’s not well suited as pillow filling.
