My Hand-Sewn Ring Bearers Pillow

2013-03-20-190802Creating my own wedding accessories  has been a bit stressful, but very rewarding when they are completed. I am having a peacock color wedding, (minus the peacock feathers since my friend has  convinced me they are bad luck,) because my fiance has green eyes and I have blue. I found this beautiful satiny fabric at joanns and after a great sale took home 2 yards of it. This fabric was labeled as a tie dye even though I think that doesn’t  do it justice.2013-03-12-183050Swirls of chartreuse, teal, royal purple, cobalt blue and emerald green

with small flecks of gold flake

I took a 19” x 24” rectangle piece of fabric and after pinking all edges sewed the 19” edges together with a 1” seam, to make a tube. I then made a  drawstring  on both ends, stuffed them then drew the two ends tightly.

I took two matching, mother-of- pearl flake buttons and attached them with the cord to cover the small gap that cinching it created.  I then stitched the two buttons together  with ribbon  to hold the top and bottom together. I also took 1/8” ribbon and made a tassel and attached it to the bottom
