I knit therefore I am...

I found a very large wooden couch frame and am planning on making big, fluffy, comfy cushions for it.  Any suggestions as to what the best type of stuffing is for long life and comfort?

Also, the seat of the couch is in dire need of repair.  The springs are ok, but the wire between the springs is going.  Any crafty/carptentry person out there have good ideas on how to refurbish the spring section of the couch?  (perhaps wooden slabs will do, though they may be hard on the butt)

You could use pieces of 2x2 or something...   It'll give it kind of a futon feel, I think, but if you leave the springs there, it'll be a little more bouncy.  

And at JoAnn's, they sell packages of stuffing for stuffed animals and the like....  I think those would be best.   It's kind of expensive, but it really does work.

I've always wanted to make a pillow stuffed with fabric scraps.  I love pillows that flatten out a little bit, and I just think it would be extra comfy...   Not to mention, a great use for the trillions of fabric scraps I have lying around.

It's late, and I've been wondering...  How I can stay awake so long and miss so much...
