So I had fun making my first wannabe Waldorf dolly. I just used the junk I have around, and I'm not too sure how the regular Joann's stuffing will hold up. Now I want to make a lasting one for my sweet Scarlett. But I'm cheap. So before I found the place in PA that sells it cheaper (West Earl Woolen Mill - and I haven't confirmed this), I thought you had to pay about $20 for one pound of wool batting. Then I ordered a DIRTY fleece from Ebay that I could wash. I watched YouTube and it didn't look all that hard or that much work.
Is this normal? No, not that I'm doing this, but that they're that full of junk? Well, I would never have rested till I tried.
UPDATE: So I'm not sure how much more I have in the box - I think I probably pulled out maybe a fourth - but it's 9:02 a.m. I'm finished messing with what I washed. When I looked at it, it looked like a mountain. I put it in a trash bag that weighed .75 ounces. I put it on the scale, and my net work is worth 14 ounces! I had expected a little more in wages.
