    TV pillow and seatbelt pillow

    Latest project for GD#3 ... we're going to visit this weekend. The TV pillow is 24" square, zipper in bottom and is reversible. The seatbelt pillow goes over the seatbelt (with velcro) so the childs neck/head will be protected when they fall asleep.

    I've never seen a seat belt pillow. That's a wonderful idea. I'm sure the gifts will be loved.

    thanks Lisa.

    The seatbelt pillow is based loosely on this tutorial
    http://domesticwonder.wordpress.com/...llow-tutorial/

    I saw them on Pinterest at http://pinterest.com/search/pins/?q=seatbelt+pillow

    The pillow is just 24" square with a zipper in the bottom.

    before you speak T.H.I.N.K.
    T is it True? H is it Helpful? I is it Inspiring? N is it Necessary? K is it Kind?

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    Nancy I quilted the fabric on my longarm. thanks

    I forgot to add above that I did not use the foam scraps .... I took an old bed pillow and cut it in half ... foam scraps are lumpy in my opinion.

    I made a smaller seat belt cover to put on my seat belt the pillow bit I slide to fit between my breasts. So much more comfortable than a sharp seat belt cutting in.
    Finished is better than a UFO

    I think I'll make a seat-belt pillow for myself. LOL I'm 5'1" and that belt cuts into my neck. On long trips, it is miserable.

    So glad you posted this; what a great idea.

    The pillow was a huge hit .... the seatbelt pillow was received ok. I'm sure she'll come to love it on long rides.
