I broke my butt. Literally. I fell down some stairs and broke my tail bone. So, of course, I needed to craft something to make my tush comfortable while sitting, RIGHT?

I bring you: The Tenderbunz Pillow.

Made with fabric I already had in my stash (orange fleece and green waffle knit thermal crap.) and a whole thing of quilters batting. It took longer to cut out and stuff than it did to sew. Cheesy

Neat!  Once your tailbone has healed, you can use the pillow on your other end as a travel neck pillow.   Wink

Seriously, great project and hope you feel better soon.

Ouch! You poor thing. I severely bruised/ possibly fractured my coccyx back in 6th grade (long story) and it still plays up 16 years later. Kudos for getting off your butt (pardon the pun) and crafting something to make the ouchies more bearable.
Get well soon! Smiley

I have felt your pain! I broke my butt twice! When I was 15, I fell off a horse, then a year or so later, I got kicked by a horse. Moral of the story, Lindsey should avoid horses.

I wish someone would have been nice and crafty enough to make me a handy dandy butt pillow.

You poor thing!  Sad I hope your hind end feels better soon!  Cry  I just did the same thing about three weeks ago...it shouldn't be too long before the pain fades. Great pillow, BTW!
