Now available! Specialty Embroidery Travel Pillows

 BobbleRoos® announced today the availability of a new line of specialty embroidery travel pillows.  Designs include a “Fight Like a Girl” embroidery design to support women undergoing various forms of cancer treatment.  The travel pillows are available in a variety of pillowcase fabrics and the thread colors can be customized for the embroidery design. More custom embroidery pillow designs are planned for future.

“A few years ago, I had a good friend diagnosed and gave her one of our toddler pillows with a pretty floral pillowcase to take to and from treatments.  She recently told me how much it meant to have the toddler pillow with her as a comfort object,” said Renee Sirulnik, Owner of BobbleRoos.

“Last year, my son’s 5th grade class had a Lock-In at the school with all kinds of games and raffles.  Since the kids were spending the night at the school in a huge sleepover event, I thought it would be perfect to provide Autograph Pillows so the 5th graders could collect signatures on the pillowcase from all of their friends and teachers.  We embroidered the pillowcases with the 5th grade class and school information and raffled them off during the event.  The kids and teachers loved the pillows - it’s a great keepsake,” said Sirulnik, “and would be great for high school graduation gifts for teens to take with them to college or younger kids going to summer sleepaway camps.”

Sirulnik continued, “A few weeks ago, I had a dear friend diagnosed with breast cancer and wanted to give her something to take to the hospital and to/from treatments. I decided to combine the idea of a treatment/travel pillow with the autograph pillow so friends, family, doctors, and nurses could write encouraging and supportive words for her to take with her on this journey.  It’s a great way to be reminded of love, hope, and encouragement during a dark and scary process.”
The “Fight Like a Girl” travel pillow and Autograph Pillow are currently available for purchase on BobbleRoos website (  The pillowcases are available in several colors and fabrics and include an option to purchase a fabric marker for signing the pillowcases to make a completely unique gift.

Toddler Pillow - How to use a BobbleRoos Toddler Pillowcase with Envelope Style Closure

How to Properly Use a BobbleRoos Toddler Pillowcase

Using a pillowcase seems pretty straight-forward, right? Well take a quick look and make sure that you are taking advantage of one of the coolest features of a BobbleRoos toddler pillowcase.  From time to time, we receive questions about the inner flap of fabric on our pillowcases which is sometimes called an envelope style closure (there are many different variations on this design).   Since it can be hard to describe the design of our toddler pillowcases, we took a few pictures for a step by step illustration on how to use this inner flap to conceal and protect the toddler pillow inside.  Our pillowcase design helps to conceal the toddler pillow insert for aesthetic reasons, as well as for safety so the pillowcase doesn't slip off during the night, and it also helps to prevent curious toddler hands from pulling the pillow insert out of the pillowcase. We use an envelope style closure on all of our pillowcases - toddler pillows (12x16), youth pillows (16x20), and even our standard adult size pillowcases. Envelope style enclosures do take a little extra fabric and time/labor to make, but we believe it's these little extra touches that make all of our products so fabulous including our toddler pillowcases!
