Yep, that's my ring on there. Funny story. I was at the cupcake shop the other day (yes, I have an amazing obsession with pretty cupcakes), and as I handed over my card to pay, the lady said, "What a pretty engagement ring. Congratulations!" I thought it was funny since I have been married for almost 6 years but I don't wear a wedding band (just too bulky for my taste), just this. So I politely nodded and pretended I was happily engaged. :) At the time, it just seemed easier than explaining.
This ring pillow is made from vintage sheets, and has the same design elements as the Pleated Boxes Pillow (free pattern). I love this pattern, because you could easily customize to use designer fabrics for a patchwork ring pillow in your wedding colors. I used Coats and Clark Dual Duty XP Thread, which is strong and silky, and just perfect for the piecing and topstitching on this pillow.
I hope you enjoy this project, and you can head over to Coats & Clark for the tutorial.
