Customer’s request


I have many Abdominal pillows in different fabrics to choose from all with three Hook N Loops to hold onto a  seat belt or a pretty scarf. This customer asked for a pillow with a pocket for cool/hot packs but she didn’t want the H &L’s on it. Instead she wanted a handle to help her hold the pillow while she moved around. What an awesome idea!!! This is how it turned out. I added an elastic to the band to give it some holding power.

This pillow is made out of a lavender flannel cotton making it very soft. Loved the way it turned out. If any one wants one like this or in a different fabric let me know, here is a link to order one: Pillow with handle


I love the fact that my sewing is helping others get over the pain of surgery.


Trying out this style of pillow to add to my collection!


This is a heart shape pillow with a pocket for a cool pack!

Pain and discomfort is no fun and having a seat belt pressing on a sore body part is even less fun. I have been there and that is why I make these pillows soft and fluffy!

My abdominal pillow’s work great for someone that has Endometriosis, just had a hysterectomy, C-section, mastectomy or Heart surgery. It cushions the seat belt from your G-tube and works with just about any post-op surgeries. Can be worn during pregnancies as well!

My Abdominal Pillows are about 3″s deep of soft poly-fill fluff. I fill them with just the right amount of fluff to make them protect your ouch and soft enough to cushion you from the presser of the belt. Making the perfect Ouch-less pillow to wear during any time you are in the car. Soft enough to be flipped over and used to sleep on when attached to the upper belt.

On my pillows with pockets, there is a large 5″ x 13″ pocket allows for a hot or cold pack to be inserted. The top is closed by two plastic snaps (the kind used on baby diapers) to hold the pack in, but with some packs (like the one shown) you can add and remove without opening the snaps.

My pillows with pockets are great for hot flashes too!

New fabric for my pillows

My new mini mouse collection! Abdominal, comfort and port pillows!!!
The Abdominal is used to relieve abdominal pressure caused by using a safety belt when driving. It can be used by any motorist but is especially helpful to pregnant women and those who may be suffering from abdominal injuries, wounds, recent surgery, or pain. When properly used, the pillow is placed between your abdomen and the seat belt. Additionally, this product can be used by almost anyone who simply wants a more comfortable ride. It may also be used in conjunction with seat belt usage on an aircraft. 

And others who would use a abdominal pillow: Pregnant women, Hysterectomy, Hernia, Appendix, Gallbladder, Bypass Surgery (using the smaller pillow vertically while being transported), Children who have had abdominal surgery or just find the seatbelt uncomfortable (the 16” pillow is the appropriate size for children), people who spend lengthy amounts of time in a car (Sales Reps, long commuters, frequent flyers, etc.) as well as airplanes the pillow can be used with the seatbelt, or as lumbar support, or for taking a nap when placed upon your shoulder.

Abdominal pillow is made of 100% cotton fabric, poly-fil and hook N Loop tape. Size:
Approximate size Abdominal pillow 7″ wide x 13”long

Comfort pillow is made of 100% cotton fabric and poly-fil.  Approximate size 9” x 7”

Port pillows (3” x 6”), Comfort pillow (10” x 7”) and Abdominal pillow (7” x 13”) are placed over your ouch to keep presser of your ouch / device.

If you have a medical device (CHEMO PORT, PACEMAKER, OTHER) and are looking to buy an Ouch-less Pillow to help ease your discomfort while in a vehicle then please check out my shop on Etsy! You can find me at:  Louise’s Sewing Basket

How to use:
Wrap the hook and loop tape around your upper seat belt with the Ouch-less pillow against your chest. The hook & loop tape snugs around the seat belt. Loosen the grip if you need it to slide with your movement or snug it up to hold its spot. If it moves around too much, try a piece of drawer liner between the seat belt and hook & loop tape. If the hook & loop tape is too long you can trim it down with scissors.

Ouch-less pillows (Seat belt pillows) are designed to give you comfort while riding in a auto. Place the pillow where you need it so it can cushion your ouch from the seat belt.
