Semi-DIY wedding: Ring Pillows

I made a ring pillow yesterday! It seems like wedding crafts never ends! I keep on finding stuff I could do. This time I decided to make a ring pillow out of stuff I had around my sewing room (last minute sewing). So some scrapes from my white Maui dress, a random button, and a red ribbon later, I got a ring pillow!

You can imagine how easy it is to make — sew a square together, leave about an inch or two so that you can turn the square over. Stuff it with cotton or poly-fill. Then use a thick thread (or multiple threads together in a big needle) to sew a button and the ribbons in place in the center of the pillow. Tada! It took me less than 2 hours!

This is how the back looks like:

I really like how mine looks — not shiny, very organic and light. My almost-husband loves it, he thinks we are more like “peasants”, so this is perfect! πŸ˜›

Of course, there are much more pretty pillows out there, check etsy for inspirations:

Surprisingly, they are all sold at a very reasonable price! Definitely beats the one for 20 bucks from Michaels!

  1. So, are you sure this wedding is only “semi” DIY, or is it all DIY? You seem to be on top of everything! (I’m so jealous of your mad skills. πŸ˜‰ )
