I am making two 3.5 x 4 foot pillows for my babies. I got the material. What I need help on is the filler. Polyfil or shredded foam. What's the best option for me! Price and durability??

You can get big foam pads at fred meyers for $20.
They6 are camping pads.

Cut iin half would make two nice floor cushions.

What's a foot pillow? Is it just a pillow for your feet?

No - I'm sorry that's just how big they are - 3 1/2 feet by 4 feet...

I just saw a tutorial for a floor pillow and the person who wrote it bought cheap pillows (at Ikea but any cheap ones would do) and used those. I think she didn't even take the filling out-just stuck the entire pillows in there.

Oh my gosh, I need to go to bed! I think I even read it right the first time, but then when I re-read it, I was like, foot pillow??

Um, in terms of softness and durability, I would probably wrap a thick polyester batting around a piece of foam. As far as price, I'm not sure. Foam is expensive.

I would probably downsize to a euro sham size (24x24) to save money, unless I had to have the measurements you gave.

I clicked the link because I thought you were having a problem with your drains. Oops.

I would vote for fiber fill for kids pillows, just using shredded foam it can get very lumpy...........I have always used fiber fill for pillows and stuffed toys. It keeps its shape
