Make your doll a great travel pillow!
In less then a month I am going to be flying to Montreal to see my nieces and do their doll birthday party and My sister Bre-Anne mentioned I should try making a doll travel pillow, like the ones used by travelers on Air Planes. So at her suggestion I made my own pattern and used my sewing machine to create these really easy to sew and stuff travel pillows perfect for 18 inch dolls. I made mine out of scraps of flannel that I had. After measuring and cutting the fabric on the fold and cutting out 2 so I would have a front and back I placed right sided together and machine stitched from the inside edge all the way around until I was about 2 inches from my first stitch, then I turned it inside out and stuffed it with cotton balls but you can use fiberfill, tissues, or anything you might have on hand to stuff the pillow. Then I slip stitched it by hand closed and it is ready for my trip! I am very excited to travel to see my nieces and excited to share this pattern with you. Just copy mine by using the measurements I have written on the pattern and draw your own.
As with all my posts I would love to hear from you so email me at email@example.com or leave a comment here!
2 1/2 inches at the bottom wide, 5 3/4 inches long and at the fold 1 1/2 inches wide
