Beachy Pillows & Reader Special

So you knew I wouldn't be able to stop at just one pillow.  As long as I have scraps I have to use them up.  I ended up making 3 cute pillow covers in all.

You can see the adorable seahorse above.  I made it using leftover strips of fabric.  I sewed them all together and then cut them out into the seahorse shape and then used Wonderunder to attach it to the pillow front.  I top-stitched it using a bright blue thread.

I just love his little button eye.

Then I used some leftover patchwork squares to whip out a little 9-patch pillow cover.  Nice and simple but still cute.

I did quilt the pillow front up and down the seams.  Nothing fancy but just enough to make it feel cozy.

And here's the last pillow cover.

I still need some practice getting my satin stitching done just right but from a distance it looks nice.  Up close a good seamstress would be able to see my mistakes.  I still think it's really cute.

Anyways, I thought I would offer my loyal blog readers a special in my etsy shop.  If one of my readers purchases my beachy quilt I will throw in the beach pillow cover above for free.  Just click here to go to my etsy shop, purchase the quilt and in the notes to seller section let me know you are a blog reader.

This set would look so cute in your 3-season room, draped across a wicker chair or laid out on the lawn for summer concerts.  I hope one of you can take advantage of this great deal.

Now I am on to a custom pinwheel quilt for a special customer!!!
