There are a couple of things that I really love. One is having some small project to be worked with the needle in the evening…kinda an ancestral draw. The other is to have a design that embraces, and almost flaunts a juxtaposition. Well, when we had a request for a very unique ring pillow from a bride recently, I knew I was going to have a great evening! Is that weird? Oh well, call me weird or odd, but there is nothing like having a project that can be worked from start to finish, producing something beautiful in one evenings work. Check it out!Starting with a pile of tulle with a kiss of gold, I created a square pillow. I made sure to double up the tulle so as to prevent my filling from falling out. Now, normally, I would hit the sewing machine for this….but, I went ahead and romanticized this project by hand stitching.Pinned and sewn.Now time to fill her up! I made a cone out of paper and filled my new pillow with Ash wood shavings (proudly purchased from the hamster section at the pet store).Filled and stitched closed, it’s looking unique…now time for some frill.I loved the scallop of the lace, but it needed more…so, I embellished with some pearls, too.It was looking really pretty, but it needed a focal point….enter a wooden heart and some stain.It is ridiculous just how special this pillow turned out….cute and completely unique.I love thinking outside the box for all the little touches. If you are a DIY bride, or if you are the best maid-of-honor in the world, I hope you give this project a try.
