How to Make Your Own Comfy Travel Pillow

Whether you travel in a car or on a plane or train when you go on a vacation, you always want to try and be as comfortable as you possibly can, especially if you are going somewhere that might be a long distance and you need to sleep while traveling. So it's always a nice idea to have your own travel pillow with you for the trip. Travel pillows are generally a lot smaller than a regular pillow and can be square, U shaped or round and when you buy one they can cost up to $45.00. So why not save yourself a little bit of money and make your own?

First thing you will need to do is to pick out the kind of fabric that you want your pillow to be made out of. You can choose silk, satin, fleece, whatever you like. Fleece however is probably the easiest material to work with and it doesn't fray like some other materials that you might choose. For this project the material will be fleece. You can even take an old fleece shirt and use to make your pillow with cutting down on cost right there.

After you have your material you will need to figure out how big you want it and what shape you want it to be. The normal size of a travel pillow is about 12 inches in height and around 16 inches wide. This is about half as big as your traditional bedroom pillow. If you decide you want a U shaped one you should make a mock one first using some rolled up kitchen towels.

Once you have decided on your size you will need to add about 4 inches to the height and to the length of your pillow. Now, lay out the fabric making sure that it is flat and then carefully cut out the shape that you desire. You will of course need to cut two pieces of the same size. Take the pieces and lay them on top of one another. Make sure the sides that are considered good are out. Now take a ruler and put it 2 inches from the fabrics edge and leave 2 ½ inches on the sides, next you will cut it at 1 inch intervals all around the material this will give you 2 inches of fringe all around the pillow.

Take one corner and tie the fabric together you can do this by twisting the material into a knot. This simple twist allows for the fabric to show it's opposite side. You will tie three sides like this and then you can take the filling you decided upon and stuff it into the pillow. After you have the filling in the pillow you can then tie the fringe on the last side. Make sure that all the fringe pieces are tied securely around the entire pillow.

An insurance policy is only as good as the company that backs it.
