This special linen pillowcase offers the weary traveler a "fancy" place to rest their head. Why travel with a boring plain pillow cover when you can easily create one that is extraordinary?

This pillowcase was designed to fit a small travel pillow you can easily find in any store that sells linens. What a great place to practice some new embroidery stitches!
