Use size 10 thread and tapestry needle to sew "E"beads to the top of the pillow working on the top of row 4. To do this:
Step 1. Weave the thread end into work to secure the thread.
Step 2. The pull the thread up through the top of rnd 4. 3. String on 4 beads.
Step 4. Then insert the needle back down through along the top of rnd 4 right at the end of the line of beads so the beads lie next to each other (touching) in a row. As in the picture.
Step 5. Then bring the needle back up two beads back and bring thread back through the last two beads that were strung on the thread.
Step 6. Repeat steps 3-5 consecutively until you have completely made a hexagonal shape around the front of the pillow with no spaces in between the beads. Secure the thread in the back of the work by weaving the thread through several threads and piercing the threads as well.
Rep RND 1-5. but do not put the beads on.>
Line up both pieces wrong sides facing each other. Tie size 10 thread onto both pieces. Work the following into each stitch around. Stuff the pillow before closing completely.
RND 1: *Ch 5, sc in next st. Rep from * around. Join w/slst to first ch of ch5.

After you are done making the pillow, to attach the rings to the top of the pillow, thread the ribbon through the stitches on the top in the center of the beads and place the rings on each ribbon and tie them into a bow.
