An easy way to recycle a sweater that is no longer usable into a nice child's pillow. Protect your child's head as you drive while they are in their booster seat.
Voila, you are finished! You now have a small pillow for your young child to relax in as you are driving.
These are especially good for children who sits in a booster seat. Makes a wonderful birthday gift as well.

If you are a less-than-tall person, but want a chair to fit you anyway, you may need a nice soft neck pillow. I made mine out of an of an old velvet bathrobe.
I made a 23x7 inch rectangular pillow, and lightly filled it with soft filler. I emptied out the center part a bit, cut a strip (5x7 inches) out of the same fabric. I turned it in on the sides, wrapped it around the middle of the rectangle, and secured this strip on the back with hand stitching.
It comes out looking like a bow and fits nicely behind my neck taking any stress off on my neck.

The neck pillow is sewn from upholstery fabric that I purchased from an estate sale at a very cheap price. I also bought a small piece of fleece for the inside lining at Walmart.
To make, cut 2 pieces for neck pillow, and 2 pieces for lining. I cut my pattern pieces from interfacing, so the pattern would last me for a long time. I think it was a McCall's sewing pattern.
I came across this website which has a similar neck pattern pillow you can make for hospital patients. Or even make one for yourself. This is great to have on a long bus trip.
