Ring Bearer Pillow

“Here Comes the Bride, Here Comes the Bride”
We are in the throes of wedding season, my sewing friends
The instructions for this beauty are in the Summer 2016 issue of Classic Sewing Magazine
For subscribers, designer Sonia Showalter,
also includes the machine embroidery lattice file as a free download
No, there is not a bride in my life,
but
I’m putting together a few decorations for an upcoming
marriage conference hosted at our church
I used two layers of wash away stabilizer and some gold thread that I had on hand
Once the embroidery is stitched out and the stabilizer washed away,
the four lattice panels are ready to be joined together with some ribbon
The outside edges of the lattice overlay are then stitched down to the pillow
and the machine embroidered flowers are stitched on by hand
(yes, the flower design file is also a free download for subscribers)
This is such a quick project with lovely results
I highly recommend it for anybody who is looking for a ring bearer pillow
Can’t you just see that lattice in beautiful colors to match any bride’s wedding?
I also made some cute little treat bags using my paper crafting supplies
I filled these with Hershey’s Hugs and Kisses
They will make the conference that much sweeter!!!

Have a lovely week, sewing friends, and treat that bride in your life to a beautiful,
handmade ring bearer pillow
(or . . . contact me and I will make it for you – you can tell her you made it, it will be our secret)
