How to Stuff a Pillow With No Lumps

Make a pillow at home with two pieces of rectangular fabric sewn together. However, when the time comes to stuff the pillow, stuffing may create a pillow that is irregular and lumpy. Ideally, the stuffing should give the pillow a smooth, regular shape. When stuffing a pillow, you want to ensure that the end result is both attractive and comfortable.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Turn the pillow fabric right-side out. If you are sewing a pillow, do most of the sewing with the pattern sides facing each other. Leave a few inches open on one side, then turn it right-side out.

  2. 2

    Pull out a small handful of polyester fiberfill.

  3. 3

    Tease it apart into a fluffy cloud to eliminate clumping.

  4. 4

    Push the fiberfill into the pillow, shoving it into the far corners of the pilow.

  5. 5

    Repeat steps 2 through 4, pulling out chunks of fiberfill that are similar size and consistency. Continue until the pillow is stuffed full.

  6. 6

    Sew up the open edge of the pillow.

  7. 7

    Squeeze the pillow all over, moving the fiberfill inside until it is distributed evenly.

Tips and warnings

  • Restuff an old pillow using the same method by making a small slit over one of the seams and then resewing it shut afterward.
  • Avoid pushing the stuffing into the pillow in wadded balls, which is what creates lumps in the pillow.
