Create Your Own Comfortable Car Pillow for Road Trip | So sew easily

Hi! Stephanie from Swoodson says, and I have a very simple DIY seat belt pillow tutorial that's perfect for road trips. It is made of fleece, perfect for personalizing for children and fully machine washable. You can use the little leftovers from this project and create a fun car activity for kids Also! The small pocket can hold a phone or iPod, so it doesn't get stuck in the seat cushion.

As always, please use your own discretion when it comes to safety – I've seen them used with car seats and boosters, but be sure to check your manual to ensure you don't void any warranties!


  • (2) 4.5″ Velcro strips
  • 1/4 yard of fleece 57″ wide (perfect for tackling the scraps bin!)
  • Poly-fill or other stuffing
  • Coordinating thread, machine, scissors, hand sewing needle

Cut rectangles of fleece:

  • (2) 26″ X 6″
  • (1) 9.5″ X 6″
  • (4) 6.5″ X 3.5″


Step 1

1. Take the 9.5″ This forms the pocket.

2nd step

2a. Take each 6.5″ opened.

2b. Cut the seam allowance down, turn right side out and sew the Velcro piece. Repeat for all four tabs.

step 3

3. Place one of the long pieces right side out and brush the 3 raw edges of the pocket on the bottom, leaving the top open.

step 4

4. Layer the Velcro tabs on top of each other to form two hooked pairs and baste them about 4 inches from the short ends, on the right side of the second long piece. Leave about an inch hanging on each side (hold it while you baste so it stays straight).

step 5

5. Place each long piece right sides together and sew with a 1/4″ seam allowance (I used my serger for added strength but it’s not required). Leave a 2 inch opening for turning right side out, stuff firmly, sew to close (I used a ladder stitch).
