As of December 2022, Dress for Recovery is no longer collecting these Seatbelt Pillows. They have plenty and are grateful for our support.

The pattern is still available if you would like to make it for someone you know.

Seatbelt Pads (donated to Dress for Recovery, Merrick)
Seatbelt Pads are attached to car seat belts.  For people who have a medical port for chemotherapy, a car seatbelt pad relieves pressure and avoids possible irritation around the port.

Hint:  More batting is better.
