Side Sleeper Pro Pillowcase

Picture of Side Sleeper Pro Pillowcase
So I bought a side sleep pro pillow and after putting a pillowcase over it I realized you can't use it correctly with a regular pillowcase because you can't fit your shoulder in properly. So I went about making my own. My sewing is still really crappy but enough to do the trick. Please be gentle with my sewing skill and poor planning.

Pic#1: Before pocket, I cut off that excess for a one of the two pieces

Pic#2: 2 pieces cut out

Pic#3: Sewed the edges

Pic#4: Just wanted to finish so I didn't go into detail

            Use the excess on both sides to sew on the inside the two pieces, one of the pieces should overlap the other

Step 4: Finished

Hmmm, it feels nice, supports your head well because theres no gap of pillow between your shoulder and head but....I guess I like to squirm around when I sleep and when I wake up I'm not sleeping on my side. It only works if you sleep on your side, so if you move around its an very oddly shaped pillow.
I'm also a restless sleeper, but the side pillow feels so good on my neck. It encourages good posture in sleeping and less likely to awaken all twisted in a knot as my neck and shoulder were back in January. I have been dealing with extremely painful muscle spasms ever since. I encourage people who even think they might like it to try it. I bought mine on ebay for $16.23, and it was flown to me here in New Mexico! I do not know how the seller made a penny on it!
