I made 4 travelling pillows in all. When my sister saw that I was making some, she asked for one … so, she got one.
I also made matching eye masks. The pillow is loosely stuffed with one pair of jogging pants, a t-shirt, a set of underwear and a sarong. The sarong I can pull out if I feel I need a bit of a blanket on the plane.
I don’t stuff them tight, because I like it to adjust to my neck / head when I’m ready to sleep. The button I used is a spool of thread (fitting, eh?).
My sister’s has a lady bug button. She sort-of collects all sorts of lady-bug things, so I thought it would be fitting for her!
My husband says that the travel pillows remind him of his grandma’s bloomers! Now … how do I get that thought out of my head as I walk through airports with the travel pillow bouncing on my backpack? LOL!!!
Each neck pillow uses about 1/2 yard.
