I've always been a bad stuffer. Convinced that I was missing some secret ability, I stayed away from the stuffing business. But, I figured it out now. Ah-Ha, the reason the pillows turn out so lumpy is because the fabric is too thin. So to thicken it up a bit, I started quilting the fabric to some batting (or use a heavier-weight fabric) to hide the bumps. The quilted rows give the fabric a soft and cozy feel too, reminds me of camping for some reason?
