Goldfish Pillow

Here is the first pillow I designed for Dmitri's goldfish & crane bedroom!

 
 I think the top right goldfish is staring at me...eeh.

It only cost me $ 0.99 ! Time investment? About an hour.
I made a stencil using this goldfish , drew it onto the fleece, and cut it out. I hot-glued googly-eyes on! I cut out little felt "bubbles" and hot-glued everthing in place. Very minimal sewing! (Just the basic pillow). 

This idea could be used for a lot of different animals. Hope it inspires you to create something fluffy!

ADORABLE! it looks a lot like my bird pillows i picked up at target and have been seeing lots of designers using in magazines.

maybe target could pick up your goldfish line ;) great job, girl!

that's awesome! I like how the goldfish are sort of sizing you up.

Looks great. Hope your little one will not eat the eyes though.

Very cute- and I am a fan of anything using a hot glue gun!
