Introduction: The IPillow
Ever had the problem of wanting to listen to music while in bed but don't like the inconvenience of headphones or getting tangled in cord if you fall asleep? If so then this is the Instructable for you.
Step 1: Gather Materials
-Material (i used felt)
-Hot glue gun
Step 2: Outline What Type of Shape You Want
I did a Head Test to get a rough indication of where the speakers would be.
Then i drew my idea onto the bit of felt. The one pictured is by no means perfect so feel free to change it around. Basically it's divided into 4 compartments; 1 for each speaker, 1 for the bunch of extra wire and another for the cord to pass through
Step 3: Cutting
Cut out your design (this one will be the bottom) and then use it as a template for the other (this is the top). Simple!
Step 4: 1st Bit of Sewing
Sew the bottom, both ends and half of the middle ones. This is because there has to be a gap left for the cords to pass through.
Step 5: Glue Stage
Glue both speaker to roughly the middle of each of their sections. Then bundle the excess cord (i had a bit) and glue it together and to the middle of it's section. You also might want to glue the cord that passes through the sewed line for ease of sewing later.
Step 6: More Sewing and Stuffing
Sew the other ends leaving a gap for the hole or the cord to pass.
Then stuff each section with stuffing to your liking. I like it soft
Step 7: Last Bit of Sewing
Now sew the top together and don't forget to leave yet another gap for the cord to pass through.
Then sew the top section together and you're nearly done
Step 8: Last Bit
Now tidy it up by cutting off the scrappy bits and loose bits of thread.
I also decided to attach some safety pins to each end so i could pin it to my pillow
Step 9: Using It
i pinned it to my pillow to stop it moving around.
Now you can rock out while catching 40 (or more) winks!
