Lilies of the Valley

I made this 25 years to hold our wedding rings. My five year old nephew was our ring bearer. And my soon-to-be husband's 20 month old niece walked down the aisle as our flower girl. She did great!

If memory serves me correctly, this was a kit. I'm not sure where I bought it, but I think it might have been the Exeter Handkerchief Shop while looking for material to embellish my hat. I did a hatch job of turning it into a pillow. Which I think I finished two days before the wedding. (I didn't have a lot of time to plan things - 4-5 months from when we decided to get married to the wedding.) I was pretty darn pleased with myself.

I see one thread has pulled out of the corner fans. Oh well.

25 years! Happy Anniversary, Woo Hoo Yous, and Mazzletov!

Your ring pillow is just lovely and such a nice treasure to remember your big day.

(Did you get married right out of elementary school?) :-)

Happy belated 25th anniversary! I love your ring pillow. What a great memento of a wonderful event. For both of my sisters, I stitched a ring pillow for them using the scrapes from the hem of my brides maid dress for a ruffle. Making it something lasting from their event. I wish that I would of had something like that from mine...oh, well, still have the original DH - that is good enough:)

Congrats on 25 years! I think I went with my mom to the Exeter Handkerchief Shop back in the day!
