Finishing Your Pillow
OK, so you’ve stuffed and stuffed, and your little pillow is practically bursting with scraps. You’re ready to finish this sucker off! Use a couple of pins to close off the opening, and stitch it closed either by hand or on your machine. If you opt to machine stitch, make sure you back-stitch on either end so the opening is extra secure.
The completed pillow might be slightly lumpier than one stuffed with polyfill, but it wasn’t nearly as lumpy as I’d feared it would be. Plus, every time you lean on it, you get to feel good about reducing waste and making a cute pillow all at the same time!
Do any of you guys use scraps for stuffing? I’d love to hear your experiences in the comments!
