Introduction: Elegant Ring Pillow

About: I got married on August 7th, 2010! I made EVERYTHING for my wedding, including my dress, the bridesmaid dresses (all 6!), the guest book attendant's dress, the groomsmen vests and ties, the flower girl and ri…

This is a relatively easy item to make. I love it because it's so easy to match your wedding colors perfectly.

Step 1: Materials Needed

- White Satin
- Satin to match your Wedding Colors (I chose Platinum)
- Batting or Polyester Filling
- Sewing Machine
- Pins
- Scissors
- Needle
- Thread
- Pretty Button/Brooch for Center
- Ribbon (30" long)
- Iron

Step 2: Cut Fabric

Cut two 7.5" squares of your white satin, and two 7.5" squares of your colored satin.

Step 3: Prepare the Center Band

Fold the center band right sides together, lengthwise.


Step 4: Sew and Iron the Band

Sew using a 1/4" seam allowance.

Iron the seam flat to one side.

Step 5: Flip the Band Right Side Out

Flip the band right side out, with the seam in the center of the band, as shown.

Step 6: Baste the Band Edges Together

Baste the edges together, using a 1/4" seam allowance.

Step 7: Sew the Bands to the Center of the White Pieces

Sew the right side of each band onto the right side of each white piece, along the sides, using a 1/4" seam allowance.

Step 8: Sew It All Together!

With right sides facing, match the bands together, and pin. Be sure to leave a small opening so that you can flip the pillow right side out.

Sew, using a 5/8" seam allowance.

Step 9: Flip Pillow Right Side Out

Flip the pillow right side out through the opening.

Step 10: Stuff the Pillow

Fill the pillow with stuffing or with multiple 6" squares of batting.

Pin the opening, and hand-stitch it shut.

Using a safety pin, pin the center band together in the middle.

Step 11: Sew on the Button and Ribbon

Take some thread and tie a knot around the center of each band (where the safety pin is) to keep it in place for when you sew on the button/brooch.

Sew on the button/brooch.

Tie your ribbon around the button/brooch, and stitch it in place to secure it.

Step 12: Tie the Rings Onto the Ribbon

Tie the rings onto the ribbon, and you're ready to get married!

You can choose to use real rings or fake rings, depending on how much you trust your ring bearer. ;)
