Crewelwork and embroidery are considered among the most challenging and time-consuming of all the needle arts, the result of which is detail that can approximate a fine, painted canvas. Common materials for embroidery and crewelwork are silk, wool, and cotton.
The first thing is you need to buy the right kinds of pillows. Chances are the regular bed pillows that you sleep on every night aren‘t going to do the trick. You want decorative pillows that have interesting fabrics and designs. Now that's not to say that a plain cotton pillow case with a nice stripe down by the end or a a layer of lace on the edge won't look fabulous because they will with the right design. The key is to pick pillows with fabrics and patterns that go with your overall look.
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.
