Pretty Pillows

A ring bearer will be all the more adorable carrying a pillow accented with eyelet and slim ribbon.

Materials

  • Eyelet
  • Canvas
  • Sewing machine or kit
  • Satin
  • Pins
  • Stuffing
  • Scissors
  • Iron
  • Ribbon

Steps

  1. Step 1

    Sandwich a 4 1/2-inch square of eyelet between two squares of canvas (right sides facing). Sew and stuff as directed below.

  2. Step 2

    Place two 4 1/4-inch squares of satin together (right sides facing). Slip eyelet trim between them, lining up straight edge with edges of fabric; pin through all layers. Sew and stuff as directed below.

  3. Step 3

    Cut a 4 1/2-inch square of fabric; set aside. Cut a 5-inch square in quarters diagonally. Cut 11/2-inch-wide eyelet trim to cover triangles, and pin on so that long edges of trim are 1/4 inch in from edge of fabric. Sew eyelet to triangles on inside edge. Sew triangles back together with 1/4-inch seam allowance, right sides facing, to make a square; press seams open. Lay assembled square facedown on other square; sew and stuff as directed below (be sure not to catch outer edges of eyelet in the seam).

  4. Step 4

    Stitch around edges with 1/4-inch seam allowance, leaving 2-inch opening. Turn right side out; press with iron. Fill with batting; hand-sew closed. Sew on ribbon tie through all layers.
