I offer the burlap and lace flower girl baskets you see above on my site, but this particular bride needed two baskets along with a ringbearer pillow.
I currently have a burlap and lace pillow that would work, but she was looking for a better match to the baskets. So, I made the one pictured above incorporating many of the design elements from the baskets for a more consistent look.
I decided to make the pillow in burlap, but because of the loose weave of burlap, I used an underlayer of muslin. That helped ensure the filling wouldn't be seen through the burlap and also provided some stability to the pillow. You'll see I chose to tie the pieces together by also using the burlap and lace trim, pearls and ruffled lace trim. I think the "trio" looks great together and totally compliment one another. In fact, I've decided to include this pillow on my Etsy shop since I liked the finished product so much!
The coral accents were achieved through silk flower petals. If you look closely you'll see I also added some pearl sprigs. The "handle" is made with a soutache trim I found in the upholstery section of Hobby Lobby.
