DIY Travel Neck Pillow

DIY Travel Neck Pillow

I will be taking a long awaited trip to Ireland this summer so I thought I would make myself a DIY travel neck pillow to take on the plane.  This is a super simple project that any beginner can make and can be sewn in a matter of minutes.  I have included a tutorial and a pattern for this easy to make project.  I hope you give it a try whether you are traveling by plane, train or automobile, this pillow will come in handy.

What you will Need:

Step 1: DIY Travel Neck Pillow

Print out the pattern and tape the pieces together.  Place the pattern to the fabric on the fold and cut out two pieces.

Step 3: DIY Travel Neck Pillow

Sew the two pieces together leaving an opening for turning.  Make sure to clip the inner curve so that the pillow lays flat when turned.  Turn the cover right sides out.

Stuff the pillow with the fiberfill using small handfuls to ensure that you have a smooth surface without stretching the fabric.
