Using Holiday Clearance for Inexpensive DIY Pillow Projects

Over the weekend I ventured out to my local Target where I came across the mayhem of 90% off holiday clearance. After thinking out loud (silly Sarah) about using this sparkly "snow blanket" (aka batting with glitter in it) would work well as filler for the plethora of pillow projects I have on deck, my husband literally had to grab what he could as the herds of women came diving in to take some home. At $0.30 each who could blame them?I announced my plans to make my pillows and said I was going to get a cart. Although batting isn't heavy, it is a bit awkward. When I came back, the shelf was empty and my husband looked like he'd been to war. He grabbed as many as he could hold and others who were listening in took the rest. Hell hath no fury like women who can score an inexpensive craft project.

It was worth the fight as my 9 bags of batting, I mean snow blankets, will make great stuffing for some pillows projects that were waiting to happen. Even when batting goes on sale at the craft store it isn't this cheap, so at thirty cents a pillow, I'm going to consider this a tip worth sharing... now that I have all that I need that is. What? All is fair in love, crafts and clearance.
