DIY Wedding Keepsake

Posted by Judith Mackin Tuesday, February 19, 2013 3:06 PM EST


Create a memorable keepsake (we created a pillow!) using leftover fabric from your event. This way, a vital part of your special event lives on in your home decor.




Use some of the extra fabric from your runners, large enough for an 11” x 20” pillow insert, in this case.


Put the fabric’s right sides facing one another and sew along the edges leaving a ¼-inch seem allowance.


Turn your pillow right side out, stuff it, and then hand stitch the open end.


As an added flourish, create a personalized tag. In this case, we stitched Holly and Jeff’s wedding date on it.
