Making a Neck Roll Pillow

A neck roll pillow should not be confused with a travel neck pillow that is meant for supporting the head while traveling. These pillows for sleeping are easy to make owing to its shape and simple patterns. All you need is a piece of fabric, sewing needle and the stuffing material for the pillow.
• First you need to know how to make a pillow case and stitch the pillowcase for the neck pillow. Take the measurement, which will offer maximum comfort. Cut a single piece of cloth of the same size to make the pouch. Since the pillowcase is cylindrical in shape, you have to attach an additional cloth from the bottom to hold the stuffing material inside it.
• Fold the fabric vertically from the center and start stitching the wrong side of the fabric from only one side. This will form the open ended pouch. Now, fix or stitch the smaller piece from the bottom to close one end.
• Make a panel by folding at least two inches of cloth from the seam to pass the thread for closing the open end after it has been stuffed. Now you need to decide the neck roll pillow insert that will provide you good support.
• You can stuff the pillow with synthetic cotton or pure cotton. People also prefer using microbeads, since they are extremely light and are good for relieving neck pain. After filling the pillow, draw the thread through the panel and tie it tightly. You can also stitch the open end in the same way as you have closed the bottom of the pillow.
• This completes the pillow. Cover the pillow with custom-made pillow cover, or you can sew it in the similar way. You can also add embroidery works to the pillows for making attractive pieces of home decorative materials.
