The Travel Pillow A Great idea even for adults and looks so easy to make. It works by placing seatbelt across center flat part of pillow and simply folding over. (the website sells the finished product, but I'm sure this could easily be diy).
Maxi dress, apparently its easy to sew: Its just 4 rectangles. Measure shoulder to hem length, then girth at widest part (hips?) and divide by 4. Add seam allowance. Sew allowing for neckline, arm holes. No pattern needed. 1/2 hour, max!
