Quilled Ring Bearer's Pillow

Hi all, as you probably noticed I am doing some blog facelift(s)!??   But it is a work in progress and I want to create a new header etc. etc., and it is taking a lot time.  Especially since I barely know what I am doing!!! lol!  So bear with me until I get it back to "normal".  In the mean time, here is the next project for the Custom Quilling August Newsletter, a Ring Bearer's Pillow, part of a wedding ensemble.  Tomorrow's post has the rest of the wedding ensemble of quilled projects. 

I made this little pillow from a lightweight cream satin with a lace ruffle, pulled down in the center, top and bottom with pearls.  Then I used simple but elegant quilled and velum punched flowers to embellish it The parchment quilling strips that came in the August kit were perfect for a soft, vintage feel to these projects.  You could change the colors and shape, maybe a heart whatever you like for the pillow and the quilled elements, for your specific needs. The pearls could be changed out for crystals or even buttons to change the look. The quilling is glued on the fabric with Zip Dry clear glue, and it holds well.

The corners of the pillow have the same motifs with satin bows also, and the rings are tied in the center. Maybe it will be carried in our family's next wedding.  Saving it for my daughters or grandaughters to use.  I loved working with these beautiful strips that have now become a must have in my stash!  If you want to check out the Custom Quilling August Kit you can click the button on the side bar, it will take you to the site. Check back tomorrow for the other wedding ensemble projects.

I thought about incorporating fabric into paperworks, but applying quilling to pillows -that's something really unique! Good job! Can't wait to see other details ;)
