Ring "Bear" Pillow
Hi, today I am sharing a special creation. It's the ring bearer's pillow that I made for my wedding. My husband and I had asked my 2 nieces to be flower girls (I'll share their beautiful dresses another time). We asked his nephew (3 years old at the time) to be the ring bearer, but when they found out that I wanted him to wear a little button-on suit, they said "no". So, my little nephew, just 23 months old, was enlisted. He was very excited to act as the "ring BEAR" as he called it. Our priest said, "he's too little. He'll never do it." But he was wrong. He slowly and adorably walked down the aisle carrying the little pillow to meet his Mom, who was waiting in the front pew with M&Ms.
The pillow is made of silk batiste with French laces. I did a little hand embroidery in the corners and tied the rings in the middle with ribbon. I am linking to White Wednesday at Faded Charm.
