Wedding Ring Pillow

Modifying the design as I go along. I use the silk from an old silk shirt, that has highlight spots which gives it a nice texture. I'm using 3 widths of natural white silk ribbon - 2 mm, 4 mm and 7 mm. I've added small glass beads, small fresh water seed pearls, and french knots with single and double strands of Rainbow Gallery Splendor silk.

Next I'll be working on the detached wire-rimmed  petals; debating between using the Splendor silk or cotton floss, on an organiza ground - so as to make the petals more delicate.


  1. This is absolutely gorgeous! What a clever idea too to recycle an old silk shirt!

    1. Considering that this shirt was older than my son, it may fall into the "something old" category, although unfortunately not antique kimono fabric.
