    DIY Pillow

    A couple of months ago, I bought a dog bed made by My Pillow. While shopping for the dog bed, I also got a 2-for-1 deal on a their Travel Anywhere pillow. Once I got them, I gave one to my son & the other one, I cannibalized for a DIY pillow project.

    I really like my SLD Climashield pillow, so I thought I'd make a knock-off but instead of using Climashield, I transferred the stuffing from the My Pillow to my pillow. I recently bought some Woodland Camo Hyper D material from RBTR & used that for my pillow cover. Nice stuff. My pattern dimensions were 30" X 11.5" and the finished pillow is just about the same size as the SLD and I had enough My Pillow stuffing to make 2. Not perfect, since my sewing skills are basically on the level of a Neandrathal, but I'm pretty happy with the results just the same.

    Here's the finished product with the SLD as a reference. I wanted mine to be a little firmer than the SLD, so it's just slightly overstuffed... 4.5 oz. in the stuff sack.



    Can't wait to try it out!

    Nice work Can you clue us in on what's inside a My Pillow? I thought they were a large peice of memory foam which is obviously not true.

    It's shredded foam pieces & small chunks, but not memory foam. With all the static, it was kinda of a messy affair but not too bad. I've used it for a couple of trial naps & think it'll work out great.
