Custom Mr. + Mrs. Pillows

Part one of the bridal shower: 

A very dear friend of mine just had her bridal shower! Congratulations Cassie! It was a wonderful shower. I love showers because you get to catch up with people you haven’t seen and celebrate!

 For this bridal shower I wanted to make some type of personalized memento gift. Something for the bride and groom to remember their special day and something for the home. I decided to go with Mr. & Mrs. pillows.

 For the Mr. pillow I used black and white polkadot ribbon as a border around the pillow with four black buttons one on each corner. I cut out letters from black fabric and embroidered each letter with black thread. For the finishing touch I gave the Mr. a bow-tie.

 For the Mrs. pillow I knew I wanted lace, pearls and sparkly gems. I used the lace as a border around the pillow and stitched beads and pearls all throughout the border. This was the most time consuming part about the project but, totally worth it. It really added to the lace. Again I cut out letters from fabric and embroidered the letters with white thread and four white buttons on each corner. For the finishing touch on this pillow I gave the Mrs. a vail made from tule and more pearl beads.

 I had a lot of fun making these pillows I loved getting the materials I wanted to work with. I also wanted to include materials the bride liked as well. Cassie likes lace so I knew I wanted to have this material on the pillow. My personalized Mr. & Mrs. pillows are great because I can customize the pillows almost any way.

 Here is a picture of some of the materials.
