SpongeBob SquarePants ain’t got nothin’ on the cute sea creatures featured on Riley Blake’s newest fabric line. Dive In The Ocean to find octopus, squid, sea horses and schools of colorful fishes.

When a new fabric line arrives, the first thing I ask myself is…“What can I make with this?”…besides a quilt?

I think we all like different options when it comes to sewing, whether it’s making bags, skirts, or gifties for the special ones in our lives.

So I chose to make a cute accent pillow for a baby’s room!

I like projects that I can embellish and use different techniques like appliqué & embroidery. A chain stitch for the Splash really made the words ‘pop’ and adding the accent French knots to the anemone gave that some extra dimension too.  

Part of the fun of embellishing is searching for the trims and buttons. I came across tiny fish buttons and dug around my scraps for the ribbon. I even had some leftover Riley Blake jumbo red rick rack! Don’t throw those extra scrap pieces away. You might be able to use them on your own pillow!

And check out those little fishes swimming through the ocean stripes. My mom is the crochet artist in the family, so we have to thank her for that bit of cuteness!

I couldn’t forget the back of the pillow. It deserves something just as special. I fussy cut the selvage since the fishes were representing the color codes. A simple zig zag to tack it down and now it’s done!

After I finish something, I can’t wait to show it off. I didn’t hear..”It’s adorable”, or “That’s so cute”. The first thing I heard was…Who’s Alex?!?

Lol I don’t know who Alex is! I just needed a shop sample and we have no babies so Alex was a name I came up with!

Does anyone need an Alex baby pillow?…..
