Travel Pillows

DIY Travel Pillows

Josh and I have a trip coming up soon, so I decided to make travel pillows for our flight! It was actually really easy and fast. I had leftover stuffing from when I made my Halloween Log and I used fabric from my stash, so I didn't have to buy anything for this project!

To start out, I drew a rough draft of the pillow on tracing paper. Then I cut the tracing paper pattern out, and tried it around my neck for size. The first draft seemed a little small and I had forgotten a seam allowance, so I altered the pattern and drew it larger.

Next, I pinned the pattern to my fabric (I made sure to choose extra soft fabric) and cut out two pieces of fabric. Then I pinned the two pieces of fabric together with the right sides facing each other.

Pinning the pattern to the fabric

After the fabric was pinned together, I sewed the two pieces together - leaving a 3 inch opening. Then I turned the pillow right side out and filled it with stuffing.

Stuffing the pillow

Finally, I hand stitched the opening shut. Can't wait to use these on our trip!

Yay for comfort!
