My Laurel Burch cat pillow was starting to get really lumpy. I didn't want to throw it out, so I decided to repair it. I bought a replacement fiberfill pillow form at JoAnn Fabrics using a 40% off coupon and got to work.
First I needed to open up the seam and remove the lumpy stuffing. Using a seam ripper, I only opened it large enough to remove the old filling and insert the new pillow form. As I chose to use a form rather than loose filling the opening needed to be a bit larger.
Then I simply pulled out the old stuffing.
Next I mushed up the fiberfill form and pushed it into the pillow cover. Shake and work the form into place.
Finally using a heavy thread (embroidery floss would work well) and a larger needle I stitched it closed.
All done. Now I should get another 8 or 9 years of enjoyment of my newly repaired throw pillow.

I wanted a smaller pillow that adjusted more to me. I cut my pillow into two pieces. Then I pulled out the stuffing. Once the filling was out, I cut and pulled apart the filling into little poufs about the size of my hand.
I have a "body pillow" that has seen better days. I put it at the head of my bed and then place my pillows on top of it. It has been washed several times over the years.

Does anyone know a method to combine down pillows to bring them back to fullness? They have been laundered and fluffed. I think after a number of years they lose feathers. Any helpful hints are appreciated.
Every so often, I take mine to the dry cleaners. They send them away to be cleaned. As part of the process, I can choose to have them add more feathers.
