    input on DIY down pillow or should I buy

    So I've looked but didn't get a whole lot of threads returned. I'd like to make a down pillow as I'm finding I like to sleep with clothes behind my head right now. So, if you don't mind please unload all your trials and errors. I'm looking for info like this...

    What fabric and weight
    Square or rectangle
    Dimensions
    Did you partition the pillow
    How much down, over stuff it
    separate stuff bag or sewn on at the end or side like an eno
    How did you sew the edges and then fill and seal
    Did you add a loop to hook at your ridge line, how many loops

    Any images or drawings would be nice

    If you want to post a review on a pillow sold by one of the vendors I'd consider buying as well.

    Thanks

    I haven't made one yet but thought I might make a triangular pillow to fit a bit better. Put a retention cord on one of the points.

    I have 2 synth pillows. They're small, and really support my neck more than my head...

    I was thinking rectangle with one baffle where the baffle under my neck had a little more stuffing than the portion under my head.
    I also thought about adding a zipper, buttons or velcro on the length portion of it so I could use it *** a hand warmer like the nfl players have around their waist.
