Pattern Description:

This summer I wanted to make something special for my family to use on vacation. I tried several patterns that I found online to make a travel pillow but they were either too thin, not big enough, or choked me. So feeling like Goldilocks, I created my own pattern that was just right. It was so easy that I made one for everyone in the family and they loved them. We used them in the car - by the pool and on the beach.

The great thing about this pattern is that you can use two fat quarters to make it - or even a few bandanas. Fun and very comfy.
