    Do you think a 14" pillow would be too big? Our church already has a stash of 14" pillow forms that we were going to use for something else and it never happened. Thought maybe we could utilize them instead of buying more.
    What do you think?

    I used a regular bed pillow when I had my Mastectomy. So 14" would be fine

    Hi

    I have just made 2 of these pillows and your instructions are terrific. These can certainly be made in a short time frame. I'm not sure about using the polyfill stuffing or using quilt batting, not the warm and natural, but the other kind that is thicker. Is there much of difference between the polyfill and the batting? I have some pieces of batting that would fit well. And can the polyfil be washed if necessary? I'm making a pair of these for a friend who is have both breasts removed, and one for myself (only having a lumpectomy). Thanks for the instructions. Marge

    I have a question - probably clear as mud but you know how it is some days! In process of making one for my mom who is scheduled for surgery Dec. 11. I understand about folding the fabric in 10-1/2inches on each side and having a 1-1/2 inch space on each end. but when it says to sew the sides ???? are we talking the sides that are folded in or do we sew the top and bottom. thanks!
