I designed Surfing Safari for a friend as a gift for her newborn nephew. His parents had decided on a tropical, beachy theme for his nursery, and she wanted a gift that would fit that theme. It is such a fun, colorful accent, and makes a great gift for kids of all ages who love the beach!!
Since making the original, I have made several variations for friends, family and customers.
This pattern is for a pillow, but several surfboard tops in a variety of fabric combinations would make a really cool wall hanging or quilt! I think I'm going to have to make one now!
Note: I had so much fun making the original pillow, I made "Mookie" the monkey and matching board shorts to go with it!
The instructions are detailed and walk you step-by-step through the applique, quilting and sewing steps to complete your pillow.

I am thrilled to offer playful, imaginative stitchery designs and easy to follow, precise patterns to inspire your creativity!
Just received this very nice comment from Karen, who recently purchased one of my patterns..."I've purchased this pattern and can't wait to get started--love the precision of your drawings and pattern instructions!" I think that's what it's all about!
