Fiberfill For Big Amigurumi And Crochet Pillows

When it comes to purchasing polyester stuffing, the cost of your materials might increase greatly if you make a big amigurumi or a crochet cushion as these projects use a lot of stuffing.  So I decided to try some alternative options and to my surprise, I found that fiberfill from regular bed pillows works great!

You can find inexpensive pillows in any local Walmart for as low as $3.47 – $4.97 CAD! The Blue Whale pillow from Walmart is generously overfilled with 100% polyester fiber & it is washable and dryable.

HOW TO USE FIBERFILL FROM PILLOWS: Cut the the seam of the pillow open, take out some stuffing (as much as you can fit in your hand) and fluff it up with your fingers. Now you can use it to stuff a crochet project!
