PILLOW TALK FOR SIDE SLEEPERS
Since good sleep is crucial for healing and that glowing smile I want, I do my best to get every one of my “sleep situations” perfectly aligned.
For example, I sleep on my side, so a pillow between my knees is crucial for alignment.
Typical knee pillows are ridiculous, aren’t they?
The scooped-out one that leaves you with grinding bones, the tiny one that gets lost overnight, huge pillows that trap you, foam that gets too hot…
And none of them support the lower leg like this:
My answer to all that…I made my own.
It’s just like making a regular pillow, so I won’t add too many how-to details.
I simply used a tape measure on my leg and added a few inches on all sides.
I knew making a template would take more time, and trying to be ‘perfect’ about it wouldn’t make it any better.
I marked the 2 fabrics and cut out one piece of each style:
Sew right sides together, leaving an opening for stuffing.
Turn sewn case inside out and stuff evenly.
For stuffing I used leftover pillow filling and foam pieces, and arranged them until they were even.
Though I used pretty fabric, I cover my knee pillow with a standard case.
Works like a charm!
