My pal Nancy gave me batting left over from edges of quilts she makes. Wrapping foam softens the corners. I used a stream of Fabri-Tac glue to keep the batting in place.
I used Fabric-Tac again to keep the face fabric in place too. Nothing was machine-sewn. A fell stitch was used to close the silk. I use a fell stitch more than any other stitch.
The ends are closed like gift-wrap. It's a little messy, but I don't care. No one except our Minister of the Interior, "Benzo" Garduño, will pull up the bolster to inspect it.
It's a bit wrinkled from being 1" too long, but I'm glad it's finished. Bed pillows go over this now.
