    Kimberly and I rode the Megabus from Knoxville to Washington DC a few weeks ago. We didn't have any travel pillows, so when we stopped at a big truck stop and found some for a good price, we picked up two.

    Of course, when we got home we had to make custom cases for them. We just had to "wing it" as far as sizes. I started with 19" of case fabric, 2.5" of accent, and 10" of cuff. I ended up cutting about 10.5" of width off the fabric to make it wrap around the pillows with a .5" seam.

    The body fabric on mine was a bargain. I loved it so much that she told me to buy all they had. I think we paid $1 or $2 a yard for 8 yards of it. Kimberly wanted music for hers and we had several to choose from; we can't seem to resist music fabric.

    Thanks for looking.
