Music Pillow


One of my recent road trip embroidery projects is now paired with a fun music print to make a pillow! The credit for this idea goes to Darilyn at TheHighNoteDotNet who graciously shared this lovely quote by author Bertold Auerbach. And, if embroidery isn’t your medium of choice, she will email you an iron-on transfer to use on a pillow, T-shirt, or other fabric craft . . . how sweet is that!!!  P.S. The red one is from my flower pillow collection, and here’s a link to another music pillow from my very first month of blogging! ♥

    • Thank you! I love the simple front and busy back . . . and yes, the lovely quote! 🙂 Be sure to check out Darilyn’s blog to get the transfer . . . I know you’ll do something marvelous with it! 🙂

  1. The quote is fantastic and I love the musical fabric. Is the quote something original to Darilyn? I think it would be great on a musical card as well. I wonder if she would mind if I used it as long as I gave her credit for it?

    • Thank you! 🙂 Be sure to check Darilyn’s blog and get the iron-on transfer for one of your projects! 🙂 And I love the red pillow, too! I gave my other flower pillows away, but I love having this one in my black and white office/sewing room! 🙂

  2. It is a very elegant pillow! I was wondering if you could make a post about homemade cell phone holders/cell phone purses…I can’t seem to find a good site online that gives me details.

  3. thanks for the reference! the pillow, of course, turned out amazing! i wish i could take all the credit for the awesome saying, but it is originally from the author Bertold Auerbach.
    the fabric on the back is adorable….where are you going to put this beauty?

    • Thank you for sending me the original author’s name . . . I should have asked so I could have added it to the embroidery! Next time! 🙂 I think I’m going to enjoy the pillow in my office for awhile and then donate it to a silent auction my church’s youth group has in the fall to earn money for their mission trips. That way it will be twice loved! 🙂 Thank you again for the inspiration! 🙂

    • I got it at a friend’s quilt shop . . . but I’ve seen it at Jo-Ann and other fabric stores, too. Usually it’s black with a white background, but I was happy to find one with the black on a muslin-colored background since that’s the color I wanted to use for the front. I hope you find something you like! 🙂
