I made a bobbin lace bolster, I don't like running out of space.I usedrolling pinbroken sewing machine, thread, scissors3kg sawdustan old cot blanketcalicosome polycotton for the cover25cm diameter and 35cm longI cut 1 rectangle 84.5 by 63 and two 28cm circles (I used a large dinner plate) out of calico you could cut 4 circles from polycotton and stitck together for the endsthe same from the polycotton (if you make the piece say 100cm you could tie both ends)I sewed right sides together and then sew one of the circles in with calico and polycotton. Making the seam allowance smaller on the polycotton. I put a channel on the other end of the pieces to thread cord throughI put the sawdust in the calico trying to compact as much as possible. Hitting the cushion with the rolling pin.Once the inner was stuffed I place one the other circle on top and drew the cord tightly .I then wrapped a cot blanket around it and put the cover on.I have created about 7cm of lace I find that it is harder to put pins in than polystyrene. maybe and old camping mat might have been a good idea or some oven glove inner
