Scrappy Travel Neck Pillow

I let my perfectionism go and just dove into my scrap bag to make a neck pillow for travel.  I’ll admit, I didn’t create this pattern…it was a freebie hand-drawn pattern I received on a shop hop years ago.   I re-created it and you can find it here.

This project is pretty simple and requires a minimal amount of thought…which can be nice and fun at times. 🙂

Cut 30 – 3″ squares.  Put them together centered like so.   A row of 4, a row of 6, two rows of 8, and another row of 4 with two blanks in the center.



I used fusible batting for both the front and the back.  I double stitched all the seams to “quilt” the top and add a bit of strength to the seams.


Using the pattern, cut out the top making sure the pattern lines stay within the boundary of the sewn squares.


Find another scrap large enough for the backing.  Pin the top to it and cut out.


Sew right sides together leaving a 3-4″ opening.  Turn, stuff and sew the opening closed.  Done!


It has a new home in my carry on bag.
