    I remember going to great grandma's house and slept in her feather bed, it was so soft and comfy, she died at 101.

    All my pillows are made from the feather bed I slept on growing up on the farm. They are messy to make but worth the mess.

    Are you aware that feather comforters wash very nicely in a washing machine, and dry very nicely in a dryer! They fluff up beautifully but take two dryer cycles long.
    Ps
    They look terrible all squashed when you take them out of the washer, but fluff up in the dryer to be like new!

    Truly feathers wash well - haven't you ever seen a bird taking a bath?
    It is funny, us and them take baths....who else do you know that does?

Now cut your shell (outer part). Assemble the vest by following the directions on the pattern. It does not matter how hard you try, you will get feathers everywhere. Imagine the people that work in the down rooms that sit there all day filling baffles. I had to fill in once. I came out looking like a poorly plucked chicken. Oh, wear a face mask. Feathers up the nose are not nice either.
    Cute idea, may try this, thanks

    So is this why I am "fluffy"

    When I take a bath my "feathers (fat) fluffs"

    LOL sorry I just could not pass this one up.

    I do not think she has enough feathers for all the politicians that need it. Take care.

    I used to sell the contents of homes when the families were putting their loved ones in a home and I came across a lot of cushions on chair seats that were made with feathers. The one owner told me that when you sit in a feather seat, your rump does not get hot, that it is cooling because it breaths. I think we could all use this on our sewing chairs!!! Why get a hot seat?
