handmade ring pillow

February 28, 2017

Ben’s cousin got married earlier this month and I had the wonderful job of making the ring pillow. The color the pillow needed to be was champagne, and the sequins and satin fabric I found at Joann’s worked perfectly.

When I think back at my own wedding, there were lots of handmade touches. I didn’t even know how to sew yet! Had I known, I probably would have made my own ring pillow. I embossed my own invitations, then did water color on them, and I even sewed a button on each one. My wedding topper was something I sculpted from clay (see here). It’s been so long now, at least in my mom brain, that I don’t remember what else I made. I just remember sitting on the floor of my bedroom always making something. Now with Pinterest, weddings have gone to a whole new level. I’m glad Pinterest wasn’t around when I got married.

    Gorgeous! I love that sequin fabric! I’m in the very early stages of planning my wedding (like, the part where I just want to look at dresses and flowers but what we really need is a venue and a budget), and Pinterest is definitely both a blessing and a curse. Way too many good ideas and unrealistic expectations.

      My theory Pinterest killed weddings (the party part) not marriage. It’s gotta be tough trying to plan for things that will look picture perfect. I’m hoping my girls will want something small; I’m trying to brainwash them early.;)
