The Meadow Slumber Pillow is perfectly sized to tote along on your car or plane ride, and it’s sew adorable that all of your fellow travelers will be begging you for your secret!

This beautiful pillow uses five of the fabrics from the beautiful new Meadow collection by Camelot and Aurifil 50 wt in Light Robin’s Egg color 2710!

We’re loving those light navy prints, and we added the Meadow White Bouquet to the back for a bold pop of contrast!
