Pillow with cool or hot Pack Pocket

Pain 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 new designed 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.

This pillow can be used for someone that has gone or going through a hysterectomy, c-section, breast cancer, heart surgery, menopause, G-tube, pregnancy etc as well as a cool pillow to sleep on in the car!


This pillow has a 6″ pocket for adding a cool/hot pack. Add a cool pack into the pocket for comfort, following your doctor’s order and the cool pack instruction on usage. Abdominal pillow size is  7″ wide x 13” long about x 3.5 deep without pack.DSC04810

This pillow has 3 Hook N Loop tape closures to wrap around the seat belt. or regular belt/scarf and wear it around the house.DSC04805


There are 2 snaps on the top of the pocket to hold the pack in, but with some packs you can add and remove without opening the snaps.DSC04816

^^^Cool/hot pack nor belts are not included. Cool pack shown was bought at your my local store. You also use a cool/hot rice pack! DSC04815

2 new sizes of my Ouch-less Pillows!


You can find them here!

I have been asked for larger and longer pillows ( 7′ x 13′) add comfort for one’s Abdominal or across the chest! The abdominal pillow has three Hook N Loops to hold it in place.

The other new sizes is the chest pillow that is 5.5″ x 8″ offers more coverage on your port or pacemaker. It can also be used on the chest for heart surgery comfort.

I have a few sewn up and making more as time allows. If you would like on of the new sizes in a fabric you don’t see it in ask.

If you find a port pillow that you like the fabric and would like it in one of the new sizes please ask, most of the fabric I have more of, but there are a few that what you see is all I have.

Hot Glue Gun Stands, Holders


I use my glue gun stand all the time since I made it. Its not as pretty as these that I have made here in the picture.

Have you ever had your glue dry while you were fighting with your glue gun’s little stand?

Glue getting on your work station?

Glue gun leaving burn marks on your work station?

Weight of cord pulling your gun off the work station?

Resting your glue gun on its side and getting glue all over it?

*PROBLEM solved with a wooden glue stand rest!!!

I set about making a pattern for the gun rest and made a few to make sure it works well. As you can see it does!


Above is the same stand can hold either a mini or reg gun!

I live near the beach so flip flop season is almost year around so I painted a fun design on this one.

I am selling them for $14.95 on eBay at eBay hot glue gun

I am working on converting my pattern to a down loadable form. If interest in the pattern for my hot glue gun stand you can contact me below or on my Face book page: Louise’s Bottega in Pensacola My Face Book page
