When PillowCubes contacted me about their products*, I was a little confused at first. Was it a pillow shaped like a cube? What were they talking about?
The pillow form I ordered isn’t a cube. My form is like this one – a 12″ x 16″ insert, soft edges and all. 😉
I received my sample vacuum-sealed inside the smaller-than-I-imagined envelope mailer. One sample insert doesn’t merit a box, and it saves on postage. When you order a cube of forms, several arrive at your door, vacuum-packed inside a box – aka pillowcube. Cute, huh?
This video will clarify any cube confusion you might have.
When you order a box quantity, you receive several of the desired sized forms in a cube (or box).
Why would I want four or more of the same size pillow form?
- It’s more economical. Case shipping is the most cost-effective way to order pillow inserts. PillowCubes.com flattens and vacuum packs their pillow forms to fit inside a nice, neat, box. Case sizes vary anywhere from 4 to 24 pillows, depending on pillow size and fill.
- When I’m in pillow-making mode, I normally create several pillows at a time. And, when I really get cranking (and OCD), I keep going and sew pillows for several rooms.
- I like having extra forms on hand so I can make a pillow on a whim. Isn’t that much like most DIY-decor/sewing/craft enthusiasts?
- Friends and I (or PAM and I) can split a box, making it a very good deal for all involved.
You’ll also find an option for submitting a custom order for any number of pillows (in a variety of shapes and/or fills).
In reference to quality, I ordered my sample 12″ x 16″ form as a test product. They have several types of fill choices, and I chose the regular polyester fill. It’s packed nice and full – all the way to the corners.
Over the years, I’ve seen my share of poor quality pillow forms – empty corners, lumpy filler, hardening over time, and things like that.
I was happy to see the PillowCubes form so nicely filled. The quality is the best I’ve seen – no lumping or separating. It is very cushy, and my pillow turned out nice and full yet soft.
Here’s the pillow I made with the form inside. I love the feel of this pillow! Doesn’t it looks nice?
I have big plans for more PillowCubes inserts. I mentioned in my Tassel-Button Pillow post that I have an idea in mind for the flattened plaid pillows on our sofa.
Here’s my idea: new PillowCubes inserts. I’m ordering a cube of pillow forms the size I need for those, so they’ll be full and puffy again. I can hardly wait!
As a bonus, PillowCubes has offered you a discount. Enter “CurtainQueen10” at checkout to receive 10% off your order.
You know I don’t recommend anything I don’t like to use myself. The fact that I’m ordering more forms from PillowCubes should speak loud and clear – thumbs up here!
Happy pillow making, y’all!
