Three New Personalized Wedding Ring Bearer Pillows

Tracy has outdone herself again, I keep wondering how she does it!

I’m going to start with my favorite, the Red Lace Personalized Ring Bearer Pillow.  I think I love it because it adds just a little modern twist on an elegant classic design that is pretty much timeless.

Cool Irish Wedding Pillow Needlepoint Design

Wedding gift ideas are so hard to come up with, especially when a registry has already been bought out!

Well, even if the registry is still open, I’m sure that if the couple is Irish, then an Irish Wedding Needlepoint Pillow will be their favorite gift they receive.

The idea is pretty simple; make this design into a ring bearer pillow.  Or stitch a full size needlepoint pillow for their home.

We’ll put their last name on top and below it features two Celtic knots and the Claddagh ring.

We can change the colors around to fit any home, and if you have a different custom needlepoint idea, let us know, we’d be happy to help!  (Also, if you are interested in having a pillow made for you, contact us for pricing).

Sizes for this design depend on the use and mesh size, it ranges from 18 x 10.5 inches (for a full size pillow) to 10 x 5.6 inches (for a ring bearer).

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.
