How to Down a Pillow

It’s reversible!

Longing for something fluffy soft and warm against your cheeks? Take the case off this machine-washable, down pillow, open the double-sided zipper and turn it inside-out. The baby birdie feathers are specially sewn to the fabric so that all you’ll feel are the gossamer feather tops. Getting too cozy-tickly after a while? Just turn it outside-in again.

       sewing each and every feather to the fabric would be kind of prohibitive, wouldn't it? Besides, you would need several sheets inside, as two layers of feathers would make for a very flat pillow.   

       Perhaps some sort of sponge, contoured material between the fabric to which the feathers are sewn and the 'outer' layer?

       You know [FJ], I really admire you and your works. But I must say: If you spent the time and money to implement, patent, and invent these works, instead of keeping them as halfbakery ideas, you would be a bazillionaire. But if you do, please, stay here. Don't leave us. (+)

       Alternate title: Going down on a pillow.

       [alc] You’re right, though down is quite furry – maybe sewn to vertical pleats.
[ghillie] Thanks. //spent the time and money// Aye, there’s the catch.
[bris] Good for a little head.

       And here I was expecting a "surface to goose" missile

       I had a dream I was eating the biggest marshmallow in the world... when I woke up my pillow was gone. A different way to down a pillow?

       I'll take mine with a beanbag chaser.

       A reversible beanbag would be a pain.
