I made a bride cry …..
Luckily, in a good day
A pair of wedding ring bearer pillows ….
For her …… white satin, overlaid with a little vintage embroidered lace, and embellished with a little bouquet of silk flowers in one corner, and tiny little ribbon roses in the other ….
and for him ….. something a little bit different …. we originally discussed using black braid for the design on his ring pillow – something a little bit gothik, a little bit medieval in feel – to reflect both their interests and the wedding theme, but sticking to their colours of white, burgundy and black. Anyway…. when I saw that black chain, all thought of braid disappeared out of my head – and I’m so pleased that the bride agreed (I love it when I get things right!) ….. a couple of little silk flowers (black and gold roses, not too un-manly, I think ) and the ribbon in the centre – just to make sure that if the little ring-bear has a moment and drops the pillow, the rings won’t disappear off under a chair or down a grate somewhere!
I do think they look lovely together …….
And I had huge fun making them – it was nice to get all embellishy on a small scale. I might make some more ……
