Funky Wedding Ring Bearer Pillow Needlepoint Kits

Not every wedding is formal, but all of our ring bearer needlepoint kits were!

In order to help out with this problem, we have just added a new ring bearer pillow design to NeedlePaint.com.

These funky polka dot needlepoint designs are not just great for a fun wedding but could be a great accent pillow in their new home.

Or, if you want to design your own needlepoint pillows, we can change the words to something of your choice, and a size to fit your home.

Which of these is your favorite?

Timeless Needlepoint Wedding Ring Bearer Pillow

One of our customers just finished her needlepoint ring bearer pillow and we love it!

The needlepoint kit is was our gray timeless design but what I really love is how she framed the pillow and made a box edge.  Also, the charcoal gray velevet looks great!

Finally, see if you can notice the extra Bling she added!

New Wedding Ring Bearer Pillow Canvas Needlepoint Designs

We just created two new ring bearer pillow designs!

The Blue Spice is a twist on our popular timeless needlepoint design.  And the Iron Scroll is a classic design based on iron work from the early 1900′s.  And, as with all of our custom needlepoint kits, the personalized needlepoint canvases can include your own names and dates!

If you have an idea for a canvas but don’t see it on our website, we’ll be happy to make a new design for you.

Happy Stitching…

Needlepoint Finishing and Wedding Pillow Design

My friends Bob and Irene got married this summer, and I decided that since we love our ring bearer pillow so much, I’d have to make them one!   (You click the following link see our wedding ring bearer pillow.)

Their Custom NeedlePoint Wedding Pillow

Not only was this a fun project to design, but it also was a great opportunity for us to test out our new needlepoint finisher and our pillow finisher.  I’ve used them 5 times so far, as can be seen on the cat needlepoint post and in our newsletter, but this time the stitcher got away from the tent stitches and she decided what stitches she thought would look best.

Designing the pillow was relatively simple, I used Bob and Irene’s wedding invitation for my design inspiration, and made some alterations in photoshop.  You can see I even used their invitation for matching the colors.

We used a burgundy velveteen backing for the pillow, and the contrast looks great.  My only regret on this project, is that I think I should have made the pillow 12 x 12 rather than 8 x 8.  It does not cost much extra to put a ‘frame’ around the needlepoint, and I think fills out better on a sofa.

If you have a project that you don’t have time for, we can make it for you.  Our prices start at $2 per inch for stitching, $50 for custom needlepoint kits, $60 for pillow finishing, or $160 for a complete custom ring bearer pillow.

At the Wedding – The Ring Bearer Pillow

One of our March Posts was Seth’s ring bearers pillow. I was out of town and he was going to take on the needlepointing himself. Well, running Needlepaint and wedding plans got the better of him and I returned in time to get it done.

A Custom Needlepoint Ring Bearer Pillow

I stitched most of the needlepoint canvas with the continental stitch, and added a braided stitch to make the knot stand out and a tied stitch for the inner light blue boarder. It was fun!

With the stitching completed, I headed to the local fabric store for pillow backing, polyester filling, piping, and ties for the rings. Since the wedding was to be on the beach in Cape Cod. I opted a navy backing and piping. For a more formal indoor wedding I would probably have picked a white brocade or satin. I also spent a lot of time decided on what to use for the ring ties. I was sorely tempted to get metallic cord, but it was rough and easily unraveled. The this white polyester braid worked wonderfully and looked great. It was easy to untie lest the Best Man find himself entangled in unraveling, scratchy thread.
