Sim­ple DIY projects for your car­a­van

In smaller out­fits, find­ing suit­able places to store your bed­ding dur­ing the day can be a bit of a prob­lem – so the idea of us­ing two pil­lows as day­time cush­ions was born. You might also find them more com­fort­able than the small, square scat­ter cush­ions pro­vided with your car­a­van. How­ever, for rea­sons of hy­giene, your pil­lows, com­plete with their pil­low­cases, will need to be placed in­side be­spoke zipped cush­ion cov­ers, made to match the dé­cor. I have tried these as large, square cov­ers, into which two pil­lows can be squashed, and as some­thing more like the stan­dard ob­long pil­low­case; but they could be any size you wish. For com­fort as cush­ions, I pre­fer the ob­long shape; then it is sim­ple to re­move the cover at night to re­trieve the pil­lows.
