February 15 ~ Wedding Inspiration

on February 15 | in Celebrations, Sewing Inspiration | by | with 89 Comments

We’re shifting our True Love focus from valentines to weddings. We were careful to select features and tutorials that are perfect for weddings, but also perfectly adaptable to other celebrations, parties and home decor (I’d love a bigger version of Elsie’s pillow on my couch!). We have a lot of True Love left to enjoy!

Ring Pillow by Elsie, elsie*cake & Red Velvet Art

Elsie made this beautiful ring pillow with textured jersey leaves and wool felt petals.

If you’re looking to make a pillow with similar impact we love Amy Butler’s Snow Mum pattern (scroll down once you click over).

    I love that pillow!

  43. Morgan says:

    That’s perfect! Those frilly white pillows are just not my style.

  44. Loretta says:

    How gorgeous! You could even use it after the wedding as a place to put a ring safely when you take it off to do housework and stuff like that. I’m feeling very tempted to make one for myself!

  45. thea says:

    I am very excited for all of the wedding stuff! I need excitement because right now I am at the stressful “just starting” place of planning

  46. Kristen says:

    I love this. I think I may be making one for my couch soon.

  47. Stephanie says:

    Ok, wool felt, where do people find it and why is it different/better than regular felt? Just curious!

  48. Oh my goodness I am bookmarking that for my own wedding (someday). Beautiful!

  49. Kristel says:

    I wish my upcoming wedding has a ring bearer so that I could make this pillow! But, the textured jersey knit leaves are a genius idea.

    Love that!

  52. em ell says:

    this is ADORABLE!

  54. Ashley Ann says:

    So pretty!

  55. laura says:

    Hurrah! Been searching for a ring pillow for my sister’s April weddding.

    Wish I’d had this idea when I got married. Love the idea of one for the couch, though!

  65. Georgiann says:

    Even if you don’t have a wedding coming up, the pillow would be the perfect thing for a gift of a ring for a daughter or friend.

  66. Tong says:

    This is so pretty! I would love to see more wedding projects!!

    Love this pillow. My mom made one once with a pocket to put a tulip (or other flower) in, and the ring went on the flower stem.

  68. Beth Lucas says:

    I would never have thought to use jersey for something like this, but I love it!

  69. Emily says:

    This is so beautiful! Love the Amy Butler pillow too!

  70. Debbie Bishop says:

    The little ring pillow is lovely. Thanks for the link to the Snow Mum pillow too. I’ve saved that to do for a future project. It would make a great gift.

  71. alicia says:

    Wow, gorgeous! That might have to happen for my couch!

  72. Beth Van says:

    When I saw the second half of February’s theme, I was both excited and disappointed. Excited to see beautiful, unique items for weddings. Disappointed because I got married a year too early to use the ideas for my own wedding! Oh well, I’m sure I can adapt these beautiful ideas.

  73. Alyssa says:

    I love that the pillow is not just a plain white!! The flower is such a nice idea!

  74. beth says:

    I’ll enjoy looking at these wedding posts – with a family wedding ahead in May! And thanks again for great giveaways.

    I really like this … now I just need a reason to make it. Maybe my sister will get married soon?..??…

    Elsie, this is so great. I wish I could get married again and have a ring pillow like this one.

    I love this little pillow. It is so sweet and perfect in a not too traditional kind of way.
