Stuff it up your...neck pillow.

I have finally gotten around to mass-producing those neck pillows that I talked about in January. My industrial-sized box of fiber-fil has been patiently waiting underneath a mound of unfinished projects, and today was the day to liberate the stuffing. I am deliriously happy to cross these off of my "to-do" list!
The pattern that I drafted previously turned out great for my son, but it was not sufficient for adult comfort. So, I pulled a template off the internet - HERE - and cranked out some travel pillows for the rest of the family (and then some..). As before, I did a flannel side and a cotton/jersey side. I was relieved to be able to use some of my t-shirt stash, and to get rid of more of that pesky flannel that seems to be reproducing on my shelf.
By the way, I am TERRIBLE at stuffing things. I don't know what is wrong with my technique, but it produces lots 'o lumps in my pillows. Plus, I hate it. So, that could be part of the issue...

Have you noticed my travel theme of the last few weeks? Totally unintentional. I think it has something to do with the promise of spring making me antsy to get out of the house.  That, and the fact that I am taking a trip to visit family this month. It is going to be great having these pillows in the car for the 18 hour drive!

Thanks for the tutorial definitely needs to make this pillow and this is just perfect. I was so happy to find this pattern. My best friend just had surgery for a brain tumor and suffers from incredible headaches. I think she would love this.
