Pink Floral Little Pillow Complete!

This small pillow is ring bearer size, 8.5 x 8.5 inches. My friend pointed out that her mother had a little pillow she hung from a ribbon and kept her brooches on. Great idea. The materials are listed below the picture.

  • Flower detail pink pillow8 1/2 inch pillow form, ring bearer size
  • One fat quarter Cohama/Riverdale vintage new “Celia” fabric
  • One yard of 3 inch ribbon loop chalk white fringe inserted and sewn in place.
  • 9 inches each of chalk white 3 inch ribbon loop fringe and 2 inch rose petal ribbon loop fringe wound to make a rosette and slip stitched securely in place.
  • Vintage pearl and crystal pin on the top.
  • Rosette could be snipped off to wear as a pin or hair clip by adding either of those backings. (Wonderful way to remember your wedding day!)
  • The back has a slip pocket finish so the cover comes off easily.
What would I do with this little precious?
  • Add a side to side coordinating ribbon on top to hang from a wall hanger or hook or door handle. Add more vintage pins to show off a collection.
  • Add a ribbon in the center by winding it around the rosette to hold a ring.
  • If it was used in my wedding, I would remove the rosette and add a hair clip or pin back, and wear it as a reminder of my special day.
  • Or, just set it in a cherished spot to admire!

Pink Saturday is hosted by How Sweet the Sound.

(If you are interested, the pillow is $40 with shipping or I can make one kit minus the vintage pin for $25. Also, if you have an etsy shop, I am going to do a treasury of Pink Saturday participants if I get enough people to leave a comment that they have an etsy shop. Of course, my items will not be in that treasury. Just thought it would be fun.)
