Neck roll pillows are easy to make, and great to have on hand for your bed or any where you lounge around. The fabric you use and the trim or embellishment you choose is up to you.
Here is an easy tutorial for making one of these wonderful pillows. They don't need a lot of fabric to make this pillow and of course you can match any decor in the space it will be placed in.
You will need :
I used a 6"X14" neckroll pillow insert. I found this at my local fabric store. You can find throw pillow inserts at crafts stores and online.
Take your large piece of fabric and with right sides of fabric together, pin the long edge, as shown.
Now sew a 1/2" seam. Then press open your seam. Set a side.
With right sides of fabric together, pin the short ends of the
pillow together. Sew approximately 3/4" from top down and secure
with a back stitch.
Then leaving approximately, a 3/4" opening (see photo) continue to sew the rest of the short edge together.
* Here is an sample photo to show you this is an opening for the ribbon.
Turn down the top edge of the end piece of fabric approximately 3/4".
I used fringe for my trim to embellish the pillow. I cut two pieces of fringe long enough to go around each end of the pillow.
Go back to the large piece of fabric for the middle of the pillow. Pin the trim, with edges even (see photo) and stitch in place.
the ends of the pillow with right sides together and edges even, on top
of the middle fabric piece. Pin in place. You will be sandwiching the
trim between the two pieces of fabric.
have cut two circles the same dimension as the end of the pillow form.
This is recommended, as the pillow form will show if you don't. I chose a contrasting color of fabric for decorative purposes. You can choose the same fabric as your pillow fabric or contrasting fabric as I did. This is your choice.
Pin your circle to the end of the pillow as shown, now hand stitch in place.
Put your ribbon through the opening you created. Then place your pillow form into the pillowcase and pull the ribbon tight.
Ta Da your neck roll pillow is done.
