Hi guys, I got some cool plush remnants at the fabric store and I'd like to make one of those toilet seat shaped travel neck pillows.  Does anyone know where I could find a pattern?  Huh
Or does anyone have one of the inflatable ones and want to be my hero and post the measurements?  I think it's just a couple of circles, so I'd need the diameter of the big circle, the diameter of the hole, and how much of the circle is missing for the bite out of the donut....  Grin Kiss

Hi i saw something sort of similiar to this but i can`t remember where.
It looked really simple to make though,the pillow that i saw was made by stitching two flannels[wash cloths?] together and attaching plastic suckers on the back so that you could attach it to the bath.I don`t know what they stuffed it with though,sorry that ican`t help you more.

Sorry sorry sorry sorry i thoght you wanted to make a bath pillow, i suppose you could use the same method though and just leave off the suckers!that way your pillow would be really soft and washable.

I think the pattern is at www.sewing.org  I know I made some that were filled with rice.  My grandpa loved it and then I had to make another one for DH so he would let Grandpa have his!

Thanks so much Hollywhack!  I was looking for the U-shaped one and found the other two.  I tried making one without any measurements, and it came out way too small.  (the neck hole was big enough, but the "arms" were too small to be usefull.  I'll try it again with this one.
Thanks again!

When I make neck pillows I like to add some buckwheat hulls in addition to the rice which makes it a little bit more lightweight (but don't use all buckwheat hulls because they don't hold the heat as well). I also like to add some crushed cinnamon sticks and cloves OR some lavendar buds to give it a little bit of a scent. Smiley

my mom bought a pillow for my dad that we finally decided used cherry pits instead of rice.  it seemed to work well (he fell asleep on it as soon as it was heated up) but it smelled kinda funky, not bad, just weird.  i dont know if you were looking to fill it with rice so you can heat it up, but i guess cherry pits would be something different you could try.
