The Goal. Take an item I always carry when traveling -the pillow - and make it even more useful.
Cost. No hard cost. A few materials that were in surplus... conference lanyards, threat, a pillowcase from hosting on airbnb.
Time. The modifications took about an hour. I had pulled the sewing machine out to create my lightweight pack a few days earlier and enjoyed the chance to start another project.
Creativity. Sewing has always come natural to me. Doesn't hurt that I have a mother who taught us to sew before starting elementary school. The real art of this project is finding simple ways to make such a versatile item more useful. It would be easy to simply tie a knot around each corner of the pillow case.. this makes things simpler so that I'll actually put the case to use.
