DIY Seatbelt Pillow Ideas

When I was a kid I used to always fall asleep in the car. I don’t know why but something about driving just made me so sleepy. However, I was always usually abruptly awoken by bumpy roads and I’d always wake up with a sore neck.

I really wish I had known that seatbelt pillows were a thing because that would have changed everything. These DIY seat belt pillow ideas are for all my fellow car sleepers out there!
