I invented a gift for my bald headed friend who lives on a boat in the NW. He gets cold at night and for years has put an extra pillow on top of his head to keep it warm but of course that tends to fall
off now and again. So for Christmas I made a special project out of fleece fabric. It is a zippered pillow case with an extended area that has some batting in it. He now has the option of flipping that section over to keep his head warm but still have some control over the air coming in from the sides for easy breathing. And it won't come off his head while he is sleeping. I left the quilted section long enough to reach down onto his shoulders.
Not difficult to sew and you don't need to buy a pattern to make it. 1-3/4" yards of fleece, a 20" zipper, a length of poly quilt batting and of course thread. The width of the folded in half fleece works great for a standard size pillow so that means less labor time.
Fold the fleece in half, right sides facing in. Sew the edges together inserting the 20" zipper on the long side towards one end.
Cut a piece of polyester fleece that covers the section that forms the quilted flap over cover. I used some spray glue to hold it in place on the fleece to make it easy to turn the project inside out. Then through the zippered opening I turned the fabric through it so the right sides were facing out.
Next sew across the width of the fleece to create the cased section the pillow fits into.
Last step put lines of quilting across the section with the batting inside of it.
Insert the pillow into the cased section and it's time for a long winter's nap.
Of course if you can't sew you can safety pin a piece of fleece fabric to your current pillow case
