Ring Pillow

Our project today is for those of you who are preparing for a wedding and will like to make a ring pillow. The design featured was made from silk and was custom made for a friend, who had both her little boys serve as her ring bearers. I hope that you will enjoy making this project. You can adjust the length and width of the ribbons as you desire. You can also add other embellishments to your pillow.

Materials needed for this project:
  1. Small pillow measuring 9"x 9"
  2. 1.5 meters of 6" tule
  3. Fabric measuring 9.5" x 9.5" sq.
  4. Flower
  5. Satin Ribbon (desired width)
  6. Organza Ribbon (desired width)


Stitch fabric along upper edge using 1/2" seam allowance
Fold tule ribbon in half and pin tule ribbon in place along side edges

Stitch along remaining sides of fabric using 1/2" seam allowance
and remembering to leave an opening at the bottom centre
Snip corners of the pillow with a scissors at an angle

Turn inside out and insert pre-made pillow into casing

Close opening with a needle and thread using a slip stitch

Attach flower to the centre of the pillow
and pull tightly through to the opposite side, creating a tufted effect

Add ribbon to the other side of the pillow in the centre
Pull thread through the centre onto opposite side and back through again to complete the tufted effect

Bring tule into the centre of the pillow
Cut upper piece of tule at centre point
Form a bow with the remaining uncut tule
Use the cut tule and organza ribbon to tie the bow against the pillow

Continue to add the remaining ribbon and any other embellishments you desire

Best wishes for your special occasion!
