Travel Pillow

IMG_1398 In preparation for a 16 hour drive (and move) from Boise, ID to Denver, CO I made a travel pillow.

IMG_1280I sketched a pattern















I cut it out of a too small but soft comfy shirt.

(I ended up adding an inch to my pattern in the middle/fold)







I got two U shaped pieces from the pattern.








Then I sewed the two together leaving a two inch gap on the right outside curve for inserting stuffing.











Then I stuffed my pillow with the stuffing from an old pillow I’m not using anymore.

I spritzed the stuffing with Lavender aromatherapy pillow spray that my dear friend Jenni send me for my birthday!

Its perfect, a slight scent, just enough- very soothing while traveling!

Thanks for the shout out! hehe I think that is a brilliant idea using an old shirt! Looks comfy, hope you did sleep well on the drive. :)
