Handmade Ring Cushion

I made this for my sister-in-law who is getting ROM-ed this Saturday.

Materials: White/cream soft cotton linen fabric cut approx. 7" x 7". White cotton lace. Red embroidery thread and needle. Alphabet stamps (bought from Kiang Trading). Versacraft black inkpad for stamping on multi surfaces.

A friend gave me a copy of Clover embroidery pattern where I traced the birds from. The couple's names are hand-stamped below the birds.

To tie the rings, I attached a silvery grey satin ribbon folded in half, adorned with a crystal brad.

The back of the crystal brads look like this.

When the design is done on the cover, I stitched the front and back fabric with the lace in the between, right side of fabric facing each other (I had sewn a love later on to complete the design. Then it was turned inside out, and filled with polyester filling.

Thank you Sally!
I do have a shop on Etsy handmade site, but I'm kinda slowing down lately. I would have loved to list this on my online shop :)
