Coronation Crown Tutorial
Project by Bethany Vaughan
Fabric: Metallic Royal 3252-08 (exclusive to Hobbycraft).
Make this little crown fit for your little queen in less than an hour! Use scraps or match the fabric to a new coronation dress to make it personal.
You will need:
Fat Quarters in two different fabrics – I've used the visage coronation foil prints in silver
Fusible Interfacing – Mine is hemline branded
Small amount of round elastic – Also hemline branded
Sewing machine and thread
Step 1: Print and cut out your template and lay on top of your fabric. Cut the fabric down so it fits the pattern comfortably.
Step 2: Press your fabric flat and then iron your interfacing to the back of it.
Step 3: Trace your pattern onto the back of your fabric and cut out.
Step 4: Take one of your pieces and pin the short sides wrong sides together. Sew. Repeat for the second piece.
Step 5: Turn one of your pieces inside out and slip inside the second piece. Pin these pieces together then sew along the side with the points, all the way around.
Step 6: Trim all your seams down neatly and chop the tops off the points to reduce bulk and snip into the lower point seams to make the points smooth, making sure you don't snip into your stitching. Once done flip the right way out and press.
Step 7: Turn the bottom seams under so all the raw edges are hidden, press this so it's nice and neat and then topstitch. If you’d like to you can also topstitch the top side with the points. The main construction of your crown is now finished!
Step 8: Take some round elastic and measure how much you’d like to add. This should go from the top of your model's head to just under the chin like a strap. Sew one side of the elastic to the left of the crown and the other to the opposite side. I’ve done this on the inside of the crown so that it’s hidden. If you’ve done this neatly enough it can also be reversible!
You’re all done! Pop onto your model along with their new dress and enjoy your jubilee party!
