Ring Bearer's Pillow Project

Place your beloved wedding rings on this lovely pillow fashioned from an embroidered linen tea towel.

What You Need:

Your wedding rings will look their best on this monogrammed pillow.
  • 1/4 yard of solid-color fabric to match towel
  • Monogrammed linen tea towel with an embroidered hem
  • Matching sewing thread
  • Polyester fiberfill
  • 3 1/2 yards of 3/8-inch-wide double-faced satin ribbon

Instructions:

  1. From solid-color fabric, cut two 6-1/2 x 7-1/2-inch rectangles. With right sides facing, sew the rectangles together with a 1/4-inch seam allowance, leaving a small opening on one edge for turning.
  2. Clip the corners and turn the pillow right side out. Stuff the pillow with polyester fiberfill. Slip-stitch the opening closed.
  3. From the towel, cut two 6-1/2 x 6-1/4-inch rectangles, using the embroidered hem for the 6-1/2-inch bottom edge and centering the monogram on the front rectangle.
  4. Sew the rectangles together on three edges (right sides facing together), leaving the embroidered hem edge open. Turn the cover right side out and slip it over the pillow.
  5. Cut four 30-inch lengths of ribbon. Tie a four-loop bow at the center of each ribbon length. Sew the center of a bow to each corner of the pillow.
