I recently started driving a new car and I was having a problem with the seat belt pressing into my neck and collarbone, no matter how I adjusted the belt. It was really irritating and I was constantly fidgeting with the belt.

I found instructions for a seat belt cover at the Sew4Home home dec sewing site. The belt cover, which is fleece on one side and cotton on the other, worked out really well and eliminated the belt discomfort.

I ended up making a dozen covers and distributed them to female family members and coworkers.

So, if you're a shorter female who is frequently tugging on your seat belt because its irritating your neck, you might want to check out the site. Type "seat belt cover" into the site search box and the pattern should come up for you.

I've used other patterns from this site with great success.

Thanks! I never thought about making one of these! I have purchased them online before... one of those Harriet Carter or Lillian Vernon places so it wasn't too expensive, but I'll bet I have the fabric in my stash!!

Being short also I could not live without mine. When DH drives he claims it's too hot to have up on his neck and he just pushes it down. Very handy. Mine velcros on so I can wash it occasionally. (Like when chocolate ice cream drips on it.

Yes, the Sew4Home pattern also explains how to use Velcro for the cover closure.

I'm just amazed at how many shorter women have been "suffering" with the seat belt irritation. Its just something you put up with, I guess.

I can't live without mine either. I have made many for girlfriends, at first out of fake fur, more recently out of fleece, all with velcro. My sister uses one on her guitar strap.
