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. Step 7 Recycled Sweater Neck Pillow Craft

Supplies:

  • 1 sleeve from a sweater
  • batting or recycled batting from an old pillow
  • sewing machine
  • hand needle and thread
  • pins

Instructions:

  1. Cut the sleeve out of a sweater. If it is bigger on one end than the other then you will need to modify it by turning it wrong side out and measure the difference and sew another seam into it. Be sure to trim off any unwanted fabric also.

Tip: Velvet Bow-Tie Neck Pillow

By Bailey36 10 21

Velvet Bow-Tie Neck PillowIf 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.

Tip: Neck Support Pillow in the Bath

Rather than buying a neck support pillow for when you take a bath, just roll up a towel. It works great and assuming you don't get it wet, you have the towel handy to dry yourself off.
