I sound my barbaric yawp

i recently moved into a glorious flat with an even more glorious bathtub.  i'd been sans bathtub for quite some time... 

i decided to make a bath pillow for my partner and i.  he takes long baths, reading and such, and i thought i should make us a present.  i decided to use some bathy ingredients--towels--and some waterproof heroes--fused plastic and duck tape. 

i fused a garbage bag and stuffed it with a folded towel, sewing the whole darn thing closed. 


i took another towel and, after folding it in thirds, sewed it like an envelope pillow cover. 


i cut off the edges of the fused plastic pillow insert and tucked it in to make sure it fit how i liked



next was putting a duck tape edging around the seams. i cut the tape corners to make sure the edging was tip top


flipping the cover flap is a little tight, but i designed it that way for more towel layers o' softness


aaaaaaand, voila!

brilliant! I have been pestering the husband to get me one, maybe I should just do this instead.  Might be quicker.
Thanks so much for including the instructions!

oh! I didnt see about how it floated, ms laroooooooo... the many layers of towel make it heavier than one of the inflatable ones.  i'll just have to take another bath Wink

it stayed nice and toasty--the temperature of the water.  once out of the bath, i popped off the cover and let it dry on our radiator (the european equivalent to a home dryer  Tongue

now i need to see what the swiss mister thinks.
