A New Direction at Sew Gracious

Things are changing around here!  After many years of offering reversible organizer bins, holiday baskets & wallets, Sew Gracious is heading in an exciting, new direction; offering home decor items.
The brand new line of Sew Gracious Pillow Covers was launched on Etsy yesterday!  Here is a sampling of the new pillows.  You'll notice lots of your favorite fabrics as well as some new favorites.  More covers are in production now.  On trend colors & patterns will be the focus.

Here is a quick overview of what you will love about Sew Gracious Pillow Covers:

  • Front & Back of the cover are made from the same decorator weight fabric. Some pillow covers offered on Etsy, and elsewhere, are made using the decorative fabric only on the front. The backs are made from less expensive, solid cotton. The bottom line will result in a less expensive cover, but isn't it worth a few extra dollars to have a completely finished Sew Gracious cover that you are proud to display in your home?

  • Inside seams are serged to prevent fraying & insure durability of the cover

  • Envelope closure in back, with a generous overlap to prevent gapping . The envelope closure allows for an easy switch when you decide to change your decor or use new covers as the seasons change. All SG covers have a generous overlap so that your pillow doesn't gape open in the back.

  • Pillow forms are NOT INCLUDED but are readily available at fabric, craft & discount stores in standard sizes {18 x 18, 16 x 16, 12 x 16 an others}. Forms are inexpensive and you can save even more by using store coupons. I get my forms at Hobby Lobby using their 40% off coupon which offered most every week. You can print it directly off their website or even get it on your smartphone. By using the coupon, you can get forms for around $5 depending on the size.

  • Care instructions according to the fabric manufacturer: Use cold water & mild detergent such as Woolite. Air Dry Only. Do Not Dry Clean. Press with a warm iron to remove any wrinkles. Handwashing is best and will help retain the shape of your covers.

  • Most pillow covers are ready to ship!

    Lanyards and keyfobs will still be available in the Etsy shop, as always.  New fabrics will be appearing in those categories as well!
