Tie a length of ribbon or rickrack around the button on the front of the pillow, and use this to secure the rings on the big day!
To get started, I sewed the 2 raw edges of my eyelet lace together. You could also choose a double-edged piece of lace and skip this step (Youd only need 9 of the lace, in that case).
Place the lace on the fabric and determine the size of the pillow. I chose to cut two 9 squares for mine, but of course you can alter this for your own pillow.
Center the lace over the right side of one pillow square and sew down the center of the lace to attach it to the pillow.

Stuff the pillow with polyfil or your preferred stuffing. Put a lot of stuffing into the pillow- more than  you think it needs.

 


Hand sew the open edge shut.

Thread your needle with 2 strands of embroidery floss. Insert the needle through the back of the pillow to the front, then through your button (or stack of buttons) and back from front to back. Pinch the center of the pillow while you do this, so that it puffs a bit. 


Sew through a second button on the back (to conceal the threads). You can go back through the front button one more time to really secure the buttons. 

To knot off the thread, on the back side of the pillow, loop the thread around the button and then insert the needle through the loop twice. Pull taut and clip the thread end.
