Custom Ring Bearer’s Pillow

Michigan Style!!

Custom Ring Bearer's Pillow 1

If you know me, you know I am not getting remarried and I am not a Michigan fan so you know this is NOT for me.

This is a custom order for Lillian.  She contacted me through my blog and requested a custom made pillow.  I thought I would walk you through the process so if you are ever interested in a custom design (clothes, pillows, curtains, etc) you would know the process.

How did I end up making a Michigan Ring Pillow?  A viewer from Canada contacted me asking me about a football pillow I made a long time ago.  She asked me if I could design her a Michigan style ring pillow. 

The design: we worked together through email and I sent her a couple drawings until we had the design exactly how she wanted it. Once the design and price was settled, I started working.

Here is one of the drawings.

The work in progress: I would email my customer with update pictures on my progress. I like doing because 1)it comforts them to know I am working on their project especially since many of my customers do not know me 2)It is always easier to change something during construction then afterwards!!

To hold the rings down the aisle one of the hash marks is Velcro and will hold the rings.Custom Ring Bearer's Pillow

I was completely honored to help design a special piece of Lillian’s wedding.  This will also be a special keepsake for them too for many years to come.
