Beats the Stuffing Out of the Old Design!
Cancun is booked … but wait: we have to pay how much to bring carry-on suitcases? Seriously?
I was disheartened… to say the least. Our carry-on suitcases were going to cost $280 RT to go on vacation with us!
I had to find a more cost-efficient way for us to travel with the 2 kids if we wanted to take any excursions while in Cancun. (I tried to get the kids to agree to wearing multiple layers to avoid luggage! It didn’t work.)
I lost serious sleep plotting. I was determined. I was searching for under-utilized space on an airplane.
Ah-ha. A neck pillow. It’s perfect! And thus, the PillowPack was born.
I started sketching designs.
Neck Pillow Sketches & Scratches
I began sewing samples, perfecting the pocket, the fabric, the latch, the image.
The First Neck Pillow
I started thinking this was a great invention. Is there anything out there like it?
I Googled all sorts of variations of the term “neck pillow” and there was not a packable one out there!
I was shocked! No competition, so probably no patent out there, either. It is a gift from God placed in our laps…or more accurately: on our necks!
Stay tuned. Next step is starting the patent process.
