Good rising friends. This item is bittersweet. It is a functional pillow case pattern used for car travel or general comfort when sitting after surgery. Having the cushion between your chest and the seat belt when healing from chest surgery, like a mastectomy, you can feel safe and secure. My family members who have battled with breast cancer have used such a pillow for weeks following their surgery to be able to travel in a vehicle, making it easier to get back to normal. I hope this item helps you or your loved one on your healing process. 


This is a simple pattern with 5/8" seam allowance. It is your choice if you want to add the zipper or not. :) You may also use this pattern for a no sew version. 

Custom sizing is available!

The video tutorials are included with the purchase and I am available for any questions you may have.
