Down is a cluster from the underbody of waterfowl such as geese and ducks. These clusters grow under the outer protective layer of feathers. A down cluster has the overall appearance of a ripe dandelion pod. This three dimensional structure gives down the ability to loft. Feather, the principal covering of birds, is of a flat, two-dimensional construction. It has a hard quill shaft from one end to the other. Down will never mature into feathers as they are two completely different materials. When mixed with down, feather pillows also loft. The higher the down content, the more loft is present.
You now have a brand new decorative pillow! And now you know how to make additional ones in the future. The only downside? Don‘t be surprised if all your friends and family members ask you to make them a few throw pillows once they see yours!
Lay out your fabric on a flat surface. Using a ruler or measuring tape, draw two squares that are the size you ultimately want PLUS an extra 1 - 1/2 inches. Carefully cut them out with your scissors and lay them on top of each other with the outsides facing in. (You are going to sew your pillow inside-out and then reverse it to hide the stitching.) Pin the two pieces of fabric together by inserting a pin about every 2-3 inches.
