Sew & Embroider a Travel Head Pillow

We’ve taken a simple Blue Print travel pillow sewing pattern and made it unique by styling it with some cute embroidered eyes and finishing it with a gathered ruffle edge. Not only is this project pattern free when you sign up to Blue Print, it’s perfect for beginner sewers/embroiderers who are starting on their journey.

Embroidery Design: Urban Threads – Monster Factory Flirty Eyes
Sewing Pattern: Blue Print (Craftsy) free travel pillow sewing pattern
Level: Beginner


See how easy it is to turn a simple sewing pattern into something fun with these bright, cartoon styled embroidered eyes. Plus, we’ve added to the original pattern (removing the Bunny theme) by cutting a long strip of fabric, gathering the edge and then stitching it into a ruffled edge.


Once you complete this project suiting it to your idea, you can combine it with the Echidna Travel Pillow for your next holiday! Or even learn how to decorate and style your own beach themed tote bag.


Don’t forget to add a strip of fabric as a tag to your pillow so that you can hook it onto your luggage wherever you go.
