Fish Scale Pillows

Sometimes inspiration hits me while I drift off to sleep at night.

I have been wanting to try this scallop technique for a while.

And I knew I wanted to make a present for someone who loves orange.

But I can only thank the drowsy pre-sleep state for this fish idea. I was torn between a mermaid head or a fish head, but went for the easier one this time. This is kind of a rough draft. I will do a couple of things differently next time. Quilt them maybe? And maybe a metallic fabric or two.

I will do a little finishing on these before they go to their new home, and then maybe start another set.


  1. That is AWESOME!!!! So perfect as a housewarming gift for someone….ahem! They will LOVE IT- no words needed. Also Naiara says QUE CHULOOOOO Which means she thinks they are very cool. So you’re over here impressing Spaniards too!
