So first you have to find towels at a very specific size to make this pattern work. They sell them at Wal-mart but mine didn't keep a perfect shape after being washed, which complicates the pattern in my eyes. When I look at the pictures here I'm assuming they found a very flat pillow somewhere to use because the cheap Wal-Mart pillow I used made it it much fatter when rolled up, which then made the back pockets not very functional. I think a lot comes down to the pillow size. They called for a standard pillow but I think a flatter standard pillow should be added to that. I love the design though and for the most part the directions are fairly easy to follow. Sidenote, I'm not a seasoned seamstress so my opinion might not be worth much if you are.
