I use a base of beautiful thick báinín Irish wool felt and stuff it plump full of pure new Irish wool roving. Embellishments include antique handmade Irish lace, vintage ribbons and trims, and mother of pearl buttons. Some ideas that can be used to personalise your pillow:
-- hand stamped lettering which can include your names and the date, a verse or lyric, or a sentiment in Irish gaelic
-- incorporate bits of textiles which have special meaning for you, perhaps from an old family wedding dress or uniform, or even fabric from altering your own gown
-- add a touch of colour to coordinate to your theme, using buttons or ribbon roses
See my sample photos to see the style of the ring pillows, click on the picture to see all of the detail involved. Each pillow is a miniature work of textile art and would be a beatiful memento of your day which you can keep on display.
I have made pillows for brides all over the world who have wanted to bring a touch of their Irish heritage to their wedding day, and even locally to Irish brides who wanted to add a touch of an Ghaeilge. It would also make a thoughtful bridal shower gift.
Please convo me if you have any questions or would like a quote for your pillow, and I can create a custom listing for you.
