Hello my Little Blossoms,
Soon it’s the French tradition of the King’s Cake for the Epiphany. We share an almond cake, in which is hidden a little ceramic character called la fève (originally a bean). The youngest of the guests gets under the table and has to nominate which piece of cake goes to who (so he doesn’t try to get the piece he thinks has the fève). The person who gets the fève becomes the king/queen! Yay! And he/she nominates their king/queen! And they both get crowns! YAY!
It’s a fun tradition of cake eating, finding a treasure and dressing up as adults!
As it is coming this week end, I decided to make a few fabric crowns! Plus they are reversible!
And I made you the tutorial!
- Two 60cm x 17cm strips of fabric
- One 60cmx 17cm strip of fusible interfacing
- 60cm long trims
- 2x 8cm velcro strips
- Cut out the fabric and the interfacing – download the pattern here : Crown pattern
2. Iron on the interfacing.
3. Sew on the trims.
4. Sew on the velcro strips this way:
5. Sew the two pieces right sides together, leaving a hole to turn it back around.
6. Cut out the fabric around the corners like so.
7. Turn it back around! Push the tips and corners with a crayon to make them sharp. Sew with an invisible stitch the hole left. And tadaaaaa!
I hope you liked it!
I’ll post photos of king’s cake later on! 😉
If you make some, please send me a picture! 🙂
Love you! Lis Xx
