How to Stuff a Pillow or Softie – video

How to Stuff a Softie - video

Stuffing a softie is a little more involved than you would think. It often takes me as long to stuff a softie as it took me to sew it! It’s not hard to do it right – it just takes some patience. And a TON of stuffing. Seriously!

The number one problem I see with handmade softies is not enough stuffing. Pack it in there people! And watch this video to see how to get it smooth and even and in all the nooks and crannies.

Happy stuffing!

Best,
Wendi
That's me!

  3. How do you stuff your fabric weights? Do you use something other than fiberfill, to give them a bit of weight?

    Thanks for ‘All’ your videos… They totally rock!!

    • I used aquarium gravel because I happened to have some on hand (I don’t know why – I’ve never had an aquarium) and it turned out to be the perfect weight. 🙂

  4. What do you use for your actual stuffing? Is the poly stuff good enough?

    Thanks

    • It is – and has the added benefit of being machine washable and dryable. I like Fairfield brand. If you can find it, get the Soft Touch Poly-Fil Supreme. It’s a step up from their basic Poly-Fil and is REALLY nice.
