Girlie Travel Pillow

It is tough traveling with little ones.  I really hate turning around and seeing them fall asleep in their car seats.  Their heads and necks bobbing all over the place.  My 6 year old is now in a booster seat, so I bought him a neck pillow a couple of months ago.  Of course, my 3 year old thought she just had to have one because her bubba did! 

So, I thought…I can so throw one of those together!  Here is how it goes!!

1.) I used some fleece that I had lying around.  I just free-handed a pattern out of a piece of freezer paper.  I knew what shape and how wide I wanted it.

2.) Cut it out with the insides of your material together. 

3.) You will then sew all the way around it, leaving a 2-3 inch opening.

4.) Turn your pillow casing inside out and stuff.  I used fiber fill to fill my pillow.

5.) Lastly, sew your opening closed.  I just slip-stitched the opening closed.
