    Hello!

     

    I've been on a DIY lately and my latest creation that I wanted to share is my burlap ring bearer pillow that I upcycled from a thrift store find.  If I remember correctly, I got two small (5.5 in x 5.5 in) pillow and two small flower girl baskets for about $3.  The pillows worked out perfectly since my ring bearers will only be about 8 to 6 months respectively by the time our wedding comes around March next year so I thought I'll have it wrapped around their bellies.

     

    I've also been looking around for a DIY tutorial online on how to put a burlap pillow, but have had no luck. I did have an idea, however, on what I wanted mine to look like from Pinterest ideas so I thought, what the heck, I'll wing it.  So here's my first attempt at this :)

     

    My idea in mind

     

    I trimmed the lace that was on the edge of the pillow & cut out the lace ring holder

     

    I cut two pieces of burlap that's just a little bigger than the pillow (7x9 inches)

    I didn't want to remove the filling in the pillow; and since I wanted the rough edge look, I thought it'd be easier to just insert the pillow in burlap. So...

    I sewed the three edges.

    Inserted the pillow

     

    Placing my idea in mind to see how it's coming together

    Sewed the top ede w/ the pillow inside. NOTE: Make sure to leave enough room up top so it fits in the sewing machine just to be safe. THEN I trimmed the edges to make it look even.

    Sew the lace to the side edge

    This is how the back looks like. I left it like that so the babies can fit in it. I'll probably cut it so it can just tie on their backs.

     

    Glue the lace ring holder

    Glued the fabric flower I also create from a turtorial like this: 

    Finished product w/ my engagement ring to test

     

     

    The  End!

              You go girl! I love the burlap and lace! It was runner up for my wedding theme. Soooo pretty, with a vintage twist. Great job! Keep up the good work!
