    hint for stuffing blocks, crib bumper pads, cushions etc

    I just watched a video about Ikea - wow, was it interesting! Anyway, the person who has to put the foam and padding inside the stitched cushions wraps a piece of plastic under and up over the back edge of the filling far enough to be able to grab it. The plastic allows her to easily slide the inserts into the cover and then she simply pulls it out for use on the next one! Sure wish I knew that one when I made my baby blocks!!! Now, if only I can remember it for the next time....

    I'm so sorry - it was a tv program called "Ultimate Factories". It would have been so nice to know about this before making my baby blocks(posted under pictures a few days ago). I had some of that stiff batting that is packaged in precut sizes for making crib bumper pads. It's about 1" thick and I wanted to stack 5 of them inside each block to hold it's shape. I wound up putting two in and filling the gap with a mix of batting and polyfill. I'm guessing that using this plastic trick I could have at least gotten 4 into the blocks.
