How to: fill with little styrofoam balls

Do you ever come across a project that need those little styrofoam balls for the filling? Since I've been making a lot of breast feeding pillows for sell, I've been working with those a lot. And it trully gets on my nerve. The first time was a disaster and ever since I have been trying to find a way to fill my items with no mess, and in a short time. 

Everytime I had to fill something I would think of an easy way to do it. But it was only until the last one I had to make that I came with the greatest one. If you're struggling with the same problem, here's how to do it. 

You'll need an elastic, and the top of a large water bottle (cut the bottle in half). 
 Wrap the elastic around the bottle's small hole. And then just fill the top with the little balls. They will easily roll into the pillow (in my case), and in no time, it is done. Just make sure you keep your fabric straight!
