Seat Belt Pillow

Traveling long distances in the car can be fun but also uncomfortable! Get ready for your next road trip by making a comfy seat belt pillow.

A few days before we took off for our family camping adventure, my daughter was complaining about her booster seat and how there was no way she could relax her head against anything in the center seat. I remembered these pillows I saw on Pinterest(visit Pin for more detailed instructions). Perfect and easy enough to whip up before we go.

I purchased a very cheap pillow and used the stuffing for my pillow

I hear all the time from people I know or comments here on the blog... "I could never do that", "I'm a bad seamstress", "I'm not crafty". This is two squares of fabric, some stuffing and sewing straight lines, you can do it. I'll tell you what, I had about 10 brain farts while I was sewing this and I still managed to make it work!

For size reference, my daughter is 7 and I went with the 17x17 measurement for the fabric.
