DIAMOND MONOGRAM PILLOWS
Elegant monochromatic wedding and anniversary pillows. These pillows have embroidered centers; printed centers are available.
BLUE/PURPLE WATERCOLOR INVITATION
Alicia and Christopher chose a beautiful watercolor wedding invitation. We embellished the front of the pillow with coordinated ribbon and trim. For the back, we took the watercolor flowers at the edge of the invitation, turned them 90 degrees and created a monogram using their invitation font. Glass beads trims the edges.
MARILYN & SHELLY
Elaborate pieced anniversary pillow.
CIGAR BAND PILLOW
Julie and Adam's wedding invitation had a yellow cigar band closure. We put the invitation on one side and the cigar band on the other with ribbons.
Alyson and Ryan's wedding invitation had beautiful peacock feathers. This is an example of a simple trim treatment.
BURLAP TIED NECKROLL
Gena and Noah's autumn wedding invitation used embossed paper and was tied with raffia. We made a neckroll, choosing fabrics to mimic the invitation's earthiness, and tied the ends with, of course, raffia.
BLACK WEDDING INVITATION
Kate and Adam's unusual black wedding invitation was stunning. We found and elaborate black and silver trim applied on the pillow front. Note there is also a cording around the edges of the pillow.
YELLOW AND BLUE FLORAL TWO-SIDED INVITATION PILLOW
A lovely floral invitation. We added a simple coordinated ribbon, then printed a photo from the wedding day on the flip side of the pillow!
MAROON FLORAL INVITATION
An unusual maroon floral wedding invitation. Printed front and back.
PEBBLE AND RIBBON INVITATION
We recreated the pebble background on this wedding invitation, and topped it off with a coordinating grey satin ribbon.
The fabric for this invitation and monogram pillow is actually a set of curtains from the couple's wedding registry. We purchased the curtains and cut them up to become the background of the front and back of the pillow. The invitation was printed on silk and a beautiful and elaborate ribbon trim was used around the edges. We then unraveled some extra trim, braided it, and used it as the embellishment around the monogram.

GOLD AND BLACK NAME FROM INVITATION PILLOW
Rebecca and Jeffrey's invitation was curvy with an Art Deco flair. We took the names from the invitation and put them center-stage on the pillow. The background "windowpane" design is taken from the outline on the invitation. Elaborate gold trim on the front and sides finishes it off.
Wedding invitations are getting more and more original! This one was amazingly different. with burlap as the back of the invitation card. We put burlap on the back, of course, and used raffia to make the tie.
INVITATION LINER PILLOW
This beautiful invitation had a gorgeous envelope liner. We took the liner and expanded it - this became the back of the pillow. The pillow front has the names in the invitation font, with tassel fringe embellishment on the front and the edges.
BLUE AND YELLOW NECKROLL
This invitation came to us quite creased and marred. We cleaned it up, then made a neckroll, incorporating coordinated silk and trims.
M&N JULY 4TH WEDDING
What a great July 4th invitation! We took the arrow pattern on the top of invitation and expanded it so the invitation would fit on the horizontal rectangle. We put the initials in the invitation font on the back, with compound trim on its face. Tassel trim on the edges.
STARRY NIGHT INVITATION PILLOW
There was a lot of graphics work to make this rectangle invitation into a square pillow!
LACE CIGAR BAND INVITATION
The invitation had a lace cigar band. We took the lace and scanned it, then created a border on top of the blush pink background which surround the square envelope seal (back). The front is the invitation on a blush background.
YELLOW LEAF INVITATION PILLOW
A fun fall wedding invitation. We took the leaf pattern and created a fabric for the sides of the invitation and for the back of the pillow. Thin white piping surrounds the edges.
CURLIQ INVITATION PILLOW (STD)
The invitation was placed on one of our standard backgrounds, and embellished with tassel trim. For the back of the pillow, we typeset the name and date in the font used on the invitation.
WARM FLORAL WATERCOLOR INVITATION PILLOW
Another gorgeous watercolor invitation. We made a compound trim for the edges of the pillow - a tassel trim combined with a multicolor yarn trim.
25th ANNIVERSARY SIGNIN PILLOW
We took three photos from the wedding album and put them on the front of the pillow with the wedding date. For the flip side, we typeset the party information. We sent Ellayne and Ira the finished pillow and the guests signed it at the party.
GROMMET WEDDING PILLOW
This was one of our first pillows! The wedding invitation had a bunch of cards held together by a grommet ring and tied with a green thin ribbon. We found grommets and nailed them into orange ribbon, and used a bridal taffeta for the main fabric. The ends are tied in green. There is a lot of detail work on this pillow - note the thin orange border surrounding the invitation panel.
SHERBERT COLOR SPLASH WEDDING INVITATION
Two-sided pillow - one side is the wedding invitation and the other side is the save the date. We paired a dotted background with the save the date, whereas with the invitation side has a delicate organza trim embellishment.
The wedding was really great and of course your pillow was a huge hit. Once again you found just the right combination of colors, patterns and trim to make "the perfect gift". You are very talented and easy to work with. So thanks once again.
SIMPLY ELEGANT BLACK, WHITE AND GOLD WEDDING INVITATION
We paired this elegant invitation with gold accents with a curlique background. The pillow had a thin black trim, but it is blending into the photo background.
TUXEDO STRIPE WEDDING INVITATION
This elegant invitation had a cool striped lining. We used it as a design element, and added trim. The front side of the pillow is the invitation, while that back has their names, printed using the invitation font.
THE LOVE PILLOW
NEW - We combine initials using an interesting font to create an interesting design, which is then overplayed on a heart shape. We like this font because the curve of the capital letters mimic the curve of the heart. The colors requested by this client were blue and brown.
ELEGANT GOLD AND WHITE INVITATION X 2
ROSES AND DOTS
We took this beautiful floral invitation and placed it at the center, using the black dots on white from the back of the invite. We then changed it up a bit on the back - pulling green from the invitation.
We made two pillows from this invitation - one for the couple and the other for the parents of the bride. The front has the invitation, whereas the back has the ceremony program condensed into three pages. The bride and groom's pillow had the tassels, while the parents' pillow had the gold finger.
60TH WEDDING ANNIVERSARY INVITATION PHOTO PILLOW
This pillow was created for a 60th wedding anniversary! We took the invitation and put it on a black and aqua swirl - this matched the room decor of the party, as well as the bride's beautiful brocade jacket!
MARIA AND SCOTT WEDDING INVITATION AND WORDCLOUD PILLOW
We placed a photo from the ceremony inside the border of the wedding invitation. The trim was beaded, to coordinate with dress and shoes. Words gleaned from the guests were made into a wordcloud for the back.
Cassandra and Michael had a very traditional wedding invitation and a very bold wedding shower invite. We combined them by taking the floral and expanding it into an all-over print, as well as including some tone-on-tone stitching detail on the front. Email us at email@example.com to learn more.
ORGANIC ORGANZA WEDDING PILLOW
The invitation was a white card with a script font - simple, but lovely. Looking closer, we noticed that the font was pretty funky…and there were lots of cool accents - a packet of wildflower seeds, naturally dyed ribbon, earth tones with a bright coral/pink…our pillow concept was forming….but to make sure we were on the right track, we asked for a picture of the bride’s wedding dress….YUP! an unusual patchwork organza overcoat.
The elements we choose for our projects are thoughtful and intentional - color, texture, material all interplay. We auditioned at least 10 different grey ribbons/trim to find just the right one. The flowy outside trim reminds us of the bride’s hairstyle - organic, free and loose, breezy. The bridal coat inspired the back - striped organza fabric draped over fabric printed with gradient of brown/grey to coral/pink -look closely and you will see how the stripes change color from the top to the bottom of the pillow.
We source interesting textured fabrics and trims, and mix them with ones we print to get just the right look. This pillow is not only pretty - it has meaningful details chosen specifically for this recipient.
