Pillowrama is a soft polyester pillow cover that comes decorated with an attractive and somewhat intricate design for you to color. The design is intricate enough to challenge adult men and women with artistic skills, but not so complex that kids won't be able to color it. Each square pillow cover is accompanied by 12 markers specifically designed for use on fabric. When you use these water-based markers, color comes out of them looking like paint, and this color will dry quickly, too.
The cost of Pillowrama is $19.99 plus $7.99 shipping. The special TV offer allows you to receive a second Pillowrama by paying an extra fee of $0.00 for a total price of $27.98.

To start coloring your Pillowrama, you'll need to place it on a flat surface, such as a table or desk, with the side containing a design facing up. You'll notice that the other side is blank.
Next, after your pillowcase is positioned on a flat surface, color in its design with any of the 12 markers you'd like. You can use just two of them, use a few, or use them all. Just try to stay within the lines as best as you can.
Once you're done coloring your pillowcase, give the color a few minutes to dry (you can test this by touching a colored area with one finger). Following that, get out your ironing board and iron the colored side of the pillowcase. This will help the color stay put, even if the pillow is washed or is exposed to sunlight that could make it fade. You could skip this step, but then you might end up with a pillowcase with color that looks less than attractive at some point in the future.
After the ironing is done, unzip the pillowcase if it isn't unzipped already, and slide a throw pillow inside. Then you can zip it back up. The pillowcase measures 17 by 17 inches, so choose a throw pillow to put inside accordingly. Once you've got one in there, you can use the pillow as you normally would.
Each Pillowrama pillowcase is made of 100 percent polyester that feels soft against the skin and won't wrinkle while you apply color to it with markers. That means the pillowcase is machine washable, although you can also dry-clean polyester if you choose. Keep in mind that it's best to wash a polyester item in warm water, while it's turned inside out, and that it might shrink if put in the dryer.
These pillowcases are square-shaped and come in a generous size of 17 by 17 inches, as mentioned, so most throw pillows you'd use in your living room or to decorate your bed will fit inside. You'll be able to quickly change the pillow inside, if necessary, by undoing each case's zipper.
The zipper contained within each pillowcase is invisible, so while you'll always know it's there and be able to use it, it won't interfere with your pillowcase's attractiveness by showing from the outside.
Twelve water-based markers in shades like pink, yellow, blue and green will be included with each Pillowrama case, and these are to be used to color the front of the case. Color not only comes out of them quickly, but also dries quickly, and they're non-toxic, so you won't have to worry about getting a rash if you get some color on your skin. Plus, their non-toxic nature makes them safe for children to use and safe to be used around pets.
People of all ages, from kids to seniors, will enjoy coloring one or more of these pillowcases. Although the designs on each involve flowers, which tend to appeal to women, men and boys will have the option of making their cases look more masculine by selecting certain colors to color them with. If you like coloring in groups, you may even decide to color a Pillowrama case with your entire family or a group of friends.
If you need to get a gift for someone who's fairly artistic, a Pillowrama pillowcase that hasn't been colored in yet will likely be a good idea. Similarly, if you've created an attractive-looking pillowcase on your own, you may want to present the finished product to a friend or family member as a gift. Depending on your level of skill, if you don't tell them you colored in its design, they may even think it came from a store that way or was painted by a professional artist.
Those people who need a break from technology will probably find working with one of these pillowcases to be a nice change, as absolutely no digital technology is involved. There's no app to help you with your design, and unless you choose to take a picture of your finished case, you won't have to go near your phone at all while working with it. Offering a child or teenager one of these pillowcases to color will also be a good way of getting them away from technology if you think they spend too much time in front of screens.
Regardless of your views about technology, sitting down with a refreshing beverage and coloring one of these pillowcases will help you relax and relieve stress after a long day at work or school. You'll be able to concentrate on each bit of color you add to the case, instead of thinking about your daily worries.
While most decorative throw pillows will fit inside your Pillowrama pillowcase, standard-sized pillows that you'd use for sleeping will be too wide to fit inside. As a result, you won't be able to sleep on top of the colored design you've created on the front of one of these cases. If you're someone who doesn't even have throw pillows, just larger ones, you may be disappointed by the case's shape and size.
There's no way to wipe one of these pillowcases clean and start again if you think you've made a mistake or you decide that you want to change the color of yours. If you iron your pillowcase after coloring it, as suggested, you won't even be able to get the color out by washing it many times. Consequently, if you want to create a new design, you'll have to get another pillowcase that's blank in order to do so.
When you're coloring your Pillowrama pillowcase, you should always be using the markers that came with it. If you were to use standard felt-tip markers that you'd use on paper, the color might not look good once it's on the pillowcase, since that type of marker isn't designed for use on fabric. Along the same lines, you should not use your Pillowrama markers to color paper, as this could damage them and the color may not look right.
