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
- Pretty Button
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!
