How do you wash and reuse pillow stuffing?
You can use the stuffing from your old pillows as new filling to repair these toys. Just open the toy along the seam, add in the stuffing and stitch it back up. You can then wash the toy either by hand or machine, then it’ll be as good as new! Throw them in the car.
How much fabric do I need to make a throw pillow?
A square of 54-inch fabric is 1 1/4 yards long. That’s enough for four finished 16-inch square pillows (plus one 18-inch square of fabric left over). That 54-inch square also is a perfect size for a throw; just hem or finish the edges.
How much bigger should a pillowcase be than the pillow?
Opt for a pillowcase measuring 1/2 to 1 inch longer than the pillow length and 2 1/2 to 4 inches wider than the pillow width, if you’re buying a ready-made pillowcase.
