"I decided on straw filled.  But would rather buy one then make one.  Im lazy, I admit it.  But it looks like for me to buy one already filled it will be from out of the United States. "

Deep in thought

When one has a good question, one has to go to the ones that use things hopefully on a daily basis. I bought a ethafoam pillow.  I am not really happy with the wear on it just from learning the art of lace making.   It looks like its starting to crumble on the surface of it when I took the cover off after I noticed a differance with sticking pins into it.   Everytime I take practice lace off, I move the pattern.   I would like to get more pillows, but I am seriously wondering if a "homemade"…See More
