The Brilliant ColorPatterns of Bali Batik Pillow Covers
Aren't you just ASTOUNDED at the glorious colors Mother Nature uses in its creation? Well, I've long taken my cue from Mother Nature, so let the beautiful, unexpected pops of color of pieced PLAYFULNESS of these Indonesian hand-dyed Bali Batik cotton pillow covers bring Joy and Playfulness to your world!
Each pillow cover is absolutely unique and may use several (or many!) different fabrics in similar or contrasting color combinations to achieve a pattern. I access many different traditional and modern piecing patterns (and many times create my own!).
See below for current patterns and sizes. Note that prices include the pieced Bali Batik pillow cover ONLY.
All my pillow covers are hand/machine washable (GENTLE/ COLD WATER). Turn inside out and wash in cold water and with gentle detergent. A tiny bit of natural fabric softener is okay. Reshape and line dry. Being cotton, they will do fine with steam iron to smooth out wrinkles.
NOTE: These are PILLOW COVERS and do NOT include pillow forms. I do not stock pillow forms. All covers are made to fit standard pillow form sizes: 14"x14", 16"x16", 18"x18" 20"x20", 24" x24", 16"x12" lumbar, and 53"x20" body pillow are generally available at any fabric store, such as Jo Ann Fabrics, and online at joann.com or on Amazon. I can provide you with the kind I prefer to use, particularly the 53"x20" body pillows. Read my info about pillow forms at the bottom of this page.)

Custom Design Work
Let's create a VERY SPECIAL colorful something for your special room! Or for a special someone! Custom items in many color/patterns and sizes are very welcome. I'm always sourcing wonderful color combinations in Bali Batiks and other fabrics. Because Bali Batiks are handmade by artisans in Bali, patterns may be limited. BUT I can work with YOUR FABRICS OR MINE- or BOTH! I can incorporate yours with my own supplies. I can create pillow forms for all basic square sizes (see below), lap quilts, and other custom items and I will be happy to chat with you about your vision, etc., and provide you with a quote and photos of available fabrics based on your color scheme/request. Note that because Bali Batiks from Indonesian artisans are hand-dyed, patterns may not consistently be available. See the photos below of a custom bolster cover I recently created for a client, to give you ideas of possibilities. Please allow several weeks+, depending on the size and complexity of the item/pattern.

ABOUT PILLOW FORMS:
Quality, Durability, Machine Washability and MORE
Not every pillow form (also known as "insert") is created equal. That is to say, durable AND machine washable, so take note. Unless a pillow form/insert states, "machine washable," it is NOT. Many lesser quality pillow inserts state, "spot clean only." Depending on the fill type, some pillow inserts can get DESTROYED in a washer and the filling CAN melt in a dryer if it's hot enough. (I've had it happen even with bed pillows!). Pillows that are filled with polyfill are a good example.
Clearly you get what you pay for, so if you plan to keep the pillow for awhile, or if a family member with allergies will use it, invest in a higher quality, machine washable pillow form/insert of shredded/interlocking foam with a zipper. Then you can remove the filling and wash the liner. This also allows you to adjust the fill (shredded foam is wonderful!). (READ LABELS BEFORE PURCHASE!). I purchased several Roll and Go Anywhere pillows by MyPillow (mypillow.com) and after I made colorful covers for them, I used them on my Zero Gravity chair in private healing sessions. And clients loved them so much they generally bought them or had a custom pillow cover made for their own pillow!
You can find many shredded foam/machine washable pillow inserts on Amazon and other sites, too. One of my favorite makers is Soft-Tex, particularly for body pillows. (https://www.amazon.com/s?k=Soft-Tex&ref=bl_dp_s_web_6404926011)
