batting! Traditionally used in the middle of quilts, it also is perfect when stitching up winter crafts. I used low-loft batting because that's what I have on hand, but I would think a thicker batting would give you better coverage.
Do you spy the batting above as the Santa beard and mustache?
plastic needles slide right through it making it ideal for my upcoming Toddler Sewing Club project, The Mitten. (More on that to come!)
I'm sure we'll have fun finding more uses for batting this winter sewing season. Do you have some ideas?!
