Handmade Nautical Pillowcase

During the summer months we all just long to be by the beach. If you are unable to go to the beach, why not bring a little of the beach to you? Viktoriya created this lovely nautical themed pillow for her home using some paint, stencils, canvas, burlap, and a few other items! We think the canvas flower with the little anchor is just darling, as well!

I would like to add some sea spirit for my home in summer and created this pillowcase in blue and red colors with natural canvas tones . You only need scissors and sewing machine to do it yourself. – says Viktoriya.
