Simply Homemaking shares a tutorial on how to make a cattail fluff pillow.
Cattails are a familiar sight along the shore of any marsh, pond, lake, or river. They can often be seen growing in ditches along roadsides.
Cattails are tall, stiff plants, growing almost ten feet tall. The leaves look like giant blades of grass, about one inch wide.
The flower has two parts: a brown cylinder , and a yellow spike.
The brown cylinder is the cattail fluff that will be used for this project.
I would use two pillowcases, one going one way and the next pillowcase the other direction for a smooth surface.
