Stuffing a fabric wreath-help!

Options
Hi, I'm making a felt wreath from a kit but the kit doesn't include stuffing. I brought some to stuff the little decorations that goes on it and a little stuffing seems to go a long way but at the same time it will take a huge amount to stuff the wreath. I'm throwing away an old nighty soon and wondered about cutting it into strips and trying to take up some of the space so less stuffing is needed. Would this work or is there a better way?

    Go to your local market and buy a bag of P3, its the same stuff as they put in duvet's and its hypoallergenic so its safe even for kids!! Its washable and you get a huge amount for a little money, I try to never be without some.

    Look at the cushion pads in Wilco's. They are really cheap and I think they do 2 sizes.

    The p3 sounds great. I'm housebound so need to buy it online, does it have a different name as I can't find it?
    Can you cut up cushion pads?

    Sorry I only know it as P3 but if you search for hypoallergenic quilt filling it might come up. I get mine from a local rag market.

    Have a look on line for either kapok or hollowfibre filling, I buy mine from Dunelm mill it costs me £7.99 for a kilo http://www.dunelm-mill.com/shop/hollowfibre-filling-47406, I've no idea how much it costs for delivery though. I would think that using material might make your wreath lumpy, when it's finished you have to come back on and show it to us.
