Today we have Crystal form Crystal's Craft Spot
Last week we headed out of town with a 10 hour drive each way. I knew it was going to be tough so I planned ahead and made a few things that would make the drive a little easier. Today I thought I would share one of our kid's car pillows. It was super easy and didn't take long.
You need: a fat quarter (or enough fabric for whatever size you want), stuffing, and a sewing machine
Start by cutting a U shape out of your fabric the size you want your pillow. I made my sides thicker and the bottom (where the neck goes) thinner. I didn't want it pushing their heads out. Cut out two of them.Pin right sides together and sew along the edges. Leave an opening to turn.
Turn your pillow and stuff. Sew the opening closed-I did that by hand.
My little one stuck it behind her head and then yelled "cheese" with a big goofy smile. She then pretended to sleep for the next picture. My kids know me and the camera to well.
If you want to use my pattern I'll be adding it to my blog shortly but if you would like it sooner please e-mail me (firstname.lastname@example.org). I'm always happy to share. Also I will be sharing another variation later as well that helps with the head bobbing.
