In doing research for barkcloth curtains for my home tiki bar, I discovered an awesome source for super affordable tropical barkcloth pillow covers — just $15 each for piped, zippered pillows from Diamondhead Fabrics. To fill them, I also found two (so far) terrific pillow forms, highly rated on Amazon. (All such links on this page are Amazon affiliate links.)
Update: The pillow covers now gone… but now you have an idea how to make them — and where I got my pillow forms!
UPDATE: Everyone’s asking about Sally’s socks, so here goes the first linkie loo:
Over on the Diamondhead Fabrics website, there are currently nine different designs of pillows available to purchase. They are 20″ wide. If you are buying another fabric and want to get matchy matchy, I’d ask — maybe they will make you some pillow covers.
Disclosure: Diamondhead sent me two free pillow covers when I ordered my 70 yards of fabric to make my pinch pleat draperies. I would have bought the pillow forms anyway! There was no promise of blog coverage for the gift, I’m writing about them because I love them — and golly, the price is right!
You need a 22″ pillow form for these
To look for two pillow forms, I headed over to Amazon. I looked for those five stars and checked out some reviews, although not obsessively, and found the Pillowflex synthetic down pillow forms shown above. Reviews seemed very good. The price also was fine.
Also, I read in the string of comments, etc. that when you are ordering pillow forms, you order 2″ up, so’s you get fluffy poufy comfy cozy. So’s I did (order two @ 22″ forms for my 20″ pillows, that is). And they are (fluffy poufy comfy cozy, that is.)
