Beachy Bedroom - Seahorse pillows

Redoing my bedroom has been a very slow work in progress. But it's finally coming along.

Originally, I made some shell-y candle holders...

...and made some starfish wall art...

and now I've adding some bright pillows to the bed set:

Seahorse pillows

I googled an image of a seahorse, traced it out on to Heat'n'Bond, and ironed it onto some purply fabric. I made the pillow top with light blue swirly fabric, and the back is a beige sparkly sand-like color.

I also stitched on top and around the seahorse with matching color thread:

I have a few more ideas sitting in my brain, but we'll see what comes of it...


  1. Oh, I love these pillows and it sounds like a fun and easy project. I'll go back and look at some of your other ideas. I live in Florida and love everything about the sea!

  2. I love them and it looks easy so I pinned it to my sewing board. :)
    Thanks for the inspiration!

  3. Super cute pillow idea! And what a great way to add some color! Thank you for sharing! I’d love to have you visit me at Get Your Crap Together! We have a Pattern Party from the 1st of the month to the 10th and would love you to check it out. See you soon!
