A Wedding Rings Pillow

I love this design very much because it was really designed and stitched with love. The first prototype was for the marriage of my friends Dave and Nancy and for them I wanted something romantic with an old fashioned style.

I found a beautiful quote which seemed to me perfect for my friends: “Marriage is ever made by destiny” by George Chapman, English poet and dramatist c. 1559-1634.

In this pillow there are several old samplers symbolisms which add value and meaning to the marriage and the love relationship.

I then decided to stitch one pillow for my husband and myself. It is never too late to have a wedding pillow, even after years!!!
