  1. Thank you for this tutorial! So when you say “cotton balls” do you mean the type you can buy at the drug store.. as in the type of cotton balls you use to remove makeup and the like?

    • Yes, ordinary cotton balls; taking one and tearing from it only what is needed to pad the interior by rolling, stuffing and packing it in with a blunt needle. This results in maintaining shape, like a pillow. An alternate method would be to use cotton batting. – Cheers, Ann
