wedding ring cushions




Completed! You might be thinking 'what the **** is a wedding ring cushion?', that's what I thought anyway. I put my stupidity down to the fact that I have never been to a wedding. Having said that, we run a business making handmade wedding rings, so after discovering the array of naffness of all things wedding related during a google image search, I thought, we can do better than that!!



So, to match our Rust style, we decided to use Liberty print fabric, combined with cream Dupion silk and cotton ribbons. I love the colours of the fabrics, I hope they go down well with our customers (who are generally more into the individual wedding style if you get my drift?).





The wedding rings tie on like thus, so they are unable to fall off, and ping along down the aisle and get eaten by a dog or small child, or whatever.





As I have mentioned about a THOUSAND times, my sewing machine is unwell at the moment (waiting for a new part in post but of course post office are on strike) so I used the work one for the first time, and its not bad actually!






So now I have to make some more! They will be sent over for the transformation of our Tokyo shop, I can't wait to see it all come together!
