a pillow for our ring bearer

I don't think I have introduced you all to our ring bearer yet.

Meet E, the future mister's nephew:

Adorable. Don't you just want to pinch those cheeks?

Anyway, since we've had a super long engagement, we haven't yet officially asked E or his sister, M, to be in our wedding party. But we're now past the six month mark (!) and will be seeing them for Christmas. The future mister and I have set quite the precedent with asking the rest of our wedding party, so I thought it only appropriate to put on my creative thinking cap and come up with something cute for the little ones, too.

For E, I purchased The Best Ever Ring Bearer book:

And this weekend, I made him something he can practice with:

For the pillow, I used my hot glue gun to adhere two pieces of felt, left a little opening so I could stuff some polyfill inside, and glued on some felt leaves, a flower, and a piece of twine. I think I might check at Michael's or the Dollar Store to see if they have some plastic rings to complete the look.

Did you do anything special for the little ones in your wedding party?
