Since we leave for Vegas and Mesquite this Friday and (mostly) because I want to go to the "Busted Cherry" Run-One hash in Traverse City on the hash bus when we return I decided I was going to need something better than the crappy pillows sometimes provided for you by the airline. Thus a new project and experiment is born. Oh, our plane arrives Saturday morning at 5am from Vegas and the hash bus leaves at 8am... now you see why I'm thinking of ways to get the most rest possible!
At first I was going to sew a U-shaped pillow, but in Googling the net I came across this "Travel N' Sleep" web site and decided I liked the concept so I'd try making a travel pillow like that instead. I was also originally going to make a pillow case for the pillow, but after a couple mock experimental ones, I decided that a pillow case wouldn't really fit this thing all that well anyway.
Here's the written directions (skipping several key steps I'm sure):
I might make a change in this in a bit after I do the second pillow, but for now I'm saying to sew up those middle lines about 2/3 the way starting at the long edge that is already completely sewn shut. You are creating the inner seam for each pillow.
