Many parents of young children have probable felt that little wave of panic while driving when they look back and their child has fallen asleep, with their head so slumped forward that you can't even tell if they're breathing. Never mind, that position cannot possibly be comfortable.
My parents and my in-laws live at least 8 hours away, so when we visit, we're in for a long drive. To help make the journey more bearable for everyone involved, I whipped up these easy toddler neck pillows to help everyone ride more comfortably (the parents being able to breathe easier on behalf of their children). All you do is cut out a horse-shoe shape. K was more than happy to combine the strange neck attire I used to make sure it would fit right with his crown...King K (we've heard a lot of this lately :)). I would tell you the measurements, but K stole my pattern and hoarded it in his stash...he wanted to wear the paper more than the pillow. Cut out 2 pieces of fabric with your pattern. (Yes, the lovely fabric matches my Pack & Play Fitted Sheet, and yes, I still think it's ugly but K loves the Mickey Mouse's) Sew the pieces right sides together, making sure to leave an opening wide enough to turn right side out and stuff.
Clip the seams on the inside of the neck line so when turned right side out, the pillow will lay nicely. Turn right side out and stuff.
Hand or machine stitch the opening shut. If you have enough material, why not whip one up for yourself? :)
Thanks Make It & Love It for the inspiration!
