Nothing to do with
"magic" this time, but I'm looking for a method to transport cushions from one place to another. ie - home to market place. I need to display as many cushions as I can, and the normal cushion fillers take up space. Occurred to me that I could use inflatable cushions - if I could find them. Packs small and plays big... :=)
Also, cuts down on the weight. We're working markets in a big city, where a car is a big handicap. Nearest best I can think of, are these heart shaped balloons.. but.. the cushions are, on average 60 cm square.

Anyone in the wonderful world of balloons got any advice?

Tks!

Nope. They're just to be used for display. To inflate on site. To avoid lugging the filler cushions across town.

Tks!

Depending on size (thickness of cushion) I would use either 260 modeling balloons or if your need it thicker 360, OR really thick 446. You could stick it into the cushion and coil it around. Creating outside tension like a tire inner tube. 260's are 2 inches diameter 60 inches long, 360 are 3 inches diameter and 60 inches long you get the picture!!

That might well work, but I'm now looking at some method for making inflatable cushions from sheet polythene. I think it would give the cushions a more "filled" look. But.. I'll give the balloons a try when I get home. I'm there tomorrow....

Thanks!
