The King has been crowned!
So yeah. Yeah I was supposed to do grown up sewing next. But I have a good excuse. The little boy who lives with me, after seeing his cousins’ crowns, put in an order tout de suite for his very own crown. In fact, he went into the fabric closet and picked out his fabric of choice all by himself, a racing flag pattern, natch. How cute is that?
And how could I just sew for myself when that sweet little face looked so expectantly at me?
Since I already had my pattern designed, it was a short hour and half’s work to supply him with a crown for his regal head. Since this was a crown for a boy, I did not add trim to the top of the crown. But I sure hope that Jack never finds out that I used lingerie elastic for the trim and elastic for the back of the crown. Please, I beg of you, never tell him.
Here is the crown in all it’s royal glory.
I should note that I did not use all the “jewels” he chose. I opted to use my artist’s prerogative to style the crown. Upon seeing the finished project, he immediately noted the changes and expressed his minor disapproval. I tried to explain my design choices, but he just looked at me with disdain. Obviously, I know nothing about crown jewels. He did love the crown though. In fact, he’s sleeping with it tonight, clutched tightly in his sweaty little hands.
Love that little boy.
I promise there will be grown up sewing soon! Really!
