Introduction: Travel Pillow Modification

Picture of Travel Pillow Modification

The more expensive travel pillows have Velcro or another way to fasten the pillow around the neck for support. This travel pillow was only a few dollars, but it didn't have a support strap. I created one with a button and hair tie. I also modified the rear neck portion of the pillow for more comfort.

Step 1: Button

Sew a button to one side of the travel pillow.

Step 2: Hair Tie

Sew a loop into the hair tie that fits snugly over the button.

Step 3: Loop

Sew the hair tie to the pillow opposite the button.

Step 4: Neck

The rear neck portion of the pillow seems too large and pushes the head away from the seat in an uncomfortable way. Remove the foam and tape it so it fits behind the neck more comfortably. Reinsert into the fabric cover.

Step 5: Snap
