Seams Pillowcases / Pillowslips
The answer is simple ... because people love them, and they are a joy to make! I started making pillowcases as gifts many years ago and over time I was increasingly asked to make them available for purchase ... thus offering them through Coastal Seams.
My variety of cotton fabrics make pillowcases a thoughtful, fun & practical gift for friends and family members (including yourself!); and for both home & travel (camping, lodging, etc.). They also make welcome donations to shelters & other human-services entities.
I generally have an inventory of quilt-quality cottons in wildlife & nature-themed prints, batik, tie-dye, floral & botanical prints, miscellaneous cheerful & fanciful prints & some cotton flannels.
Photographs of a few of my pillowcase fabrics are at http://www.flickr.com/photos/coastalseams/collections/
I have many more fabric selections than shown...
All of my cottons are pre-washed
(before cutting) in hot water with
perfume-free and dye-free detergent. I line-dry fabric out of direct sun to preserve
the fabric (I recommend cold- or
warm-water washing with gentle detergent and line-drying out of sun to increase
longevity of all cotton items, whether custom made or store-bought.)
Size is "standard"
(21" x 32"). Queen-
and king-sized cases are available as special order.
Price per standard-size pillowcase depends on fabric, but is generally $9 - $12 per case (with most of my fabrics in the $10/case or $20/pair price range). I will confirm price when you contact me to discuss your fabric selection.
Tax is added to all orders as required by law. I charge for packaging & shipping as close as possible to what it costs me. I sometimes meet for delivery depending on location and timing. I also occasionally vend (click on "Vending At Events" above.)
items already made, I will ship within 2-3 days. I can usually respond more
quickly when needed - just let me know by phoning 650-941-1068.
In all cases I will
communicate with you via phone or email (your choice!) so you know when to expect
Coastal Seams is a
business registered with the state of California. In the future I hope to be
able to accept credit cards, but currently it's excessively and impractically
Feedback: If you have an item made by me, I welcome your feedback!
