Tutorial:: Travel/Toddler Pillow Cover

Are you planning a road trip this summer? If so, a pillow is an essential traveling companion, but pillows take up a ton of space! Travel or toddler pillows are a great traveling alternative to standard pillows. They are about half the size and just as comfortable for use in the car.

Nicole of Ni-Chern Designs recently shared a tutorial on her blog, for making a toddler pillow cover. Pillow covers are like pillowcases only instead of having an opening on the end, the opening is in the back of the pillow, and it typically over laps by a few inches to keep the pillow form securely inside the cover. For kid and for traveling, pillow covers make it easy to identify whose pillow is who's and they can be quickly and easily laundered whenever the need arises - very helpful with traveling with little ones.

Nicole's step-by-step instructions can be found here. Good luck! And when you're finished, post pictures of your pillows on the Ni-Chern Deisngs Facebook page!
