pillow case only - pillow or pillow form not included
Our sofas are black, so this cover matched wonderfully. The fabric is pretty, as well as strong. It's thick and I know it will be durable (which is a very good thing for our family. Yes, you can imagine pillow fights ensuing...It happens, and often). Speaking of durability, the case is extremely well made. Here's a photo of front and back views (left & right, respectively):
The envelope closure at the back makes it easy to get the cover on and off the pillow, for easy cleaning. It was sewn well, with care. The pillow that I used is a size 16x16, but there's a lot of room, so I know an 18x18 pillow size would fit nice and snug. Either size could work.
We love our Pillow Kisses pillow cover! The only thing that I don't like is the "air dry only" part. Because if I throw it in the washing machine, I might forget to take it out and let it air dry instead of popping it into the dryer. But lots of decorative pillows are "spot clean only," so I'm just glad that these covers are washable (another good thing for my family). I need to make sure I remember to air dry, iron, and put my pretty cover back on my pilllow. Which, by the way, I've already done once. The case washes well, and didn't fade at all with the first wash. (Another star on the durability category and being well-made!)
We've got LOVE for Pillow Kisses!
Here's a Q&A session with Rea, owner of Pillow Kisses:
Q: What made you want to start making pillow cases?
I love fabulous patterns, interesting textures & bold colors. While I love all these, I cannot showcase everything in my own home that is why I started making and then selling pillow covers. I have this certain excitement that my pillow covers will bring a whole new look and be a part of your home.
Q: How did you choose your shop name?
Pillow Kisses was chosen because I was thinking of pillow cases and what would sound a little bit like that and also to tell you that you will start kissing your pillows when you buy our pillow covers!
Q: Do you think you will add new products besides pillow cases in the future?
I am hoping for that to happen in the near future. I am currently exploring fabric tote bags & fabric body bags.
Q: So far, do you like Storenvy or Etsy better? Pros/cons of both?
