Super pillow idea! I love the sentiment and can think of many people who would enjoy this. My question is this though...I thought that if the pillow form was 20" that maybe the pillow cover itself needs to be larger than 20" by say an inch? Has anyone made this pillow cover and did it fit the pillow form just fine? I can't wait to make this!

Love this darling travel pillow! And a great way to use up those itty bitty fabric scraps that are too pretty to toss, and for letters you could even piece bits together for just one letter if your scraps are really small! This would be a great Bon voyage gift, or retirement or vacation gift! The pictured pillow is adorable and many thanks for posting this super idea!
