Houston here as well! For those of you familiar with the Sandollar thrift store chain, they used to sell bales of clothing for about 5-10$ They are huge! I don't know if they still do this, but it is something to look out for.
I made these cushions out of old t-shirts from the thrift store. I used stuffing from various giant thrift-store stuff toys- much cheaper than buying it! These cushions probably won't last long, but they are fun while they do. They don't take very long, the longest bit is putting all the stuffing in through that small hole.
I used about 6, but not the whole thing of each one. i was very selective about which parts I used. Each comic cell had to have Batman in it and it had to be rectangular. I messed with too many different shapes on the Playboy one, which made it alot more difficult.
