I Do...

tiered cake pillow crafted with vintage Cabin Crafts squiggle chenille,
a white button and ribbons

...is what I said when I was asked if I wanted to make a ring bearer pillow for a popular wedding magazine. Right after I ran around the room saying OMG about 50 times, the fear set in - oh, what will I do, now I have comitted, but what will I make. Well, after sleeping on it for a few nights I had an idea and then another and then another! LOL! I ended up making four to send and I am hoping they choose one for a future publication. If they don't, it really has been fun for me and has inspired me to add this line to my shop. It is just another way I can repurpose vintage texiles into something useful and beautiful! And anything is an excuse to buy more vintage fabrics! Right?? LOL! Ok, now tell me what y'all think about them and which are your favorites!
