    I've done a ton of pillows in my 50+ years of sewing - an never thought of this ... what a great idea! I actually tried it, and it is like magic to make everything easier. Well done - thanks!

    Thanks for posting. Great idea. I see how this would help with a pillow or stuffed animal, but how would it help wit a lining? Could you explain, please? Thank you.
