Stuffing/filler?

Postby sportyminx » Wed Sep 28, 2011 8:11 pm

Right, I have decided to make Bradley a knitted snake for christmas - possibly Naomi too though not decided for sure on that yet - and have just sorted out some perfect yarn - so all I need now is some help and recommendation of the best thing to stuff/fill it with and where to get it from :giggle:

TIA!

You can buy proper toy stuffing from places like dunelm mill but I tend to just rip up an old pillow & use the stuffing from that.

Oh really - the ikea store is a long way, and asda is just a stones throw, so that is typical - hmmm, may just buy some toy stuffing from ebay or something :giggle:

Thanks for letting me know!
