30+ FREE Travel Pillow Sewing Patterns

Don't ever pay top dollar for a travel pillow again!

I was taking a flight recently and during a short stopover before boarding the long overnight flight across the Atlantic, I realized that I had forgotten my trusty travel pillow on the plane.  That old pillow definitely helps me get some rest when sitting upright for hours and hours in economy. 

Well, I decided I just couldn't deal with an overnight flight without a travel pillow so I went to the gift shop to purchase one.  And holy smokes, it was almost $30 for a simple pillow!

I resolved to figure out how much these pillows actually cost to make and to find some good patterns so I could make my own when I got home.

Well, it turns out that these travel pillows are quite easy to make and cheap too.  It will only cost a couple of dollars of materials if you don't already have what you need in your stash –which you probably do.

In any case, I wanted to share the long list of free travel pillow sewing patterns that I was able to put together so you can save money too and travel more comfortably on your next trip.

    What can I use for stuffing to make it a “squishy” pillow that gives a lot when you squeeze it, but quickly resumes its shape when you let go?

      I would use upholstery foam – High-Density Polyurethane Foam. It has different densities and firmness.

    I saw one at the airport recently that had a hood attached- like a hoodie sweatshirt. Any patterns for that? Thanks!

    I find that none of the above type of pillows work. Not enough support for my neck. Last trip I bough a more expensive one with more support in it and it was much better. Still woke on and off with sore neck but not as bad.

What do you think?
