CORONATION CROWN PINCUSHION  (First released March 2023)

Celebrate the coronation of King Charles III and Queen Camilla  in a Sewyeah! style and embroider yourself a commemorative crown pincushion. 


This 10cm high  handmade crown pincushion is the perfect heirloom to commemorate the coronation of King Charles III. The colourful design is created using simple embroidery stitches  and is adorned with beads and sequins. Included with the pattern are step by step photographs and simple to follow instructions, plus templates at 100% scale. Create a unique and special keepsake with this beautiful felt coronation crown pincushion.


I love seeing handmade souvenirs from the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II in antique shops, it makes me think of the time and effort people would have taken to mark this important event.  In 1953 my great granddad painted large portraits of the Queen and Prince Phillip to hang in their front windows during the celebratory street party. These have been sadly lost but I love the idea of your pincushion becoming a family heirloom and part of social history in years to come.  


I also think this crown has strong Alice in Wonderland vibes, so if the monarchy isn’t your thing then with a few tweaks you can still have a perfect pincushion.


This 18 page Digital Download has all the instructions and templates you need to make your own heirloom pincushion.  There are  7 pages of photographic step by step instructions, 100% scale templates and a stitch guide.  I like to think they are very detailed and easy to follow. I also hold live video tutorials on my Instagram every Friday evening. 


The templates come set up for  both UK A4 and US Letter printers and there is also a set of SGV file included for cutting machines. 



For extra help I will be running a Make-A-Long on Friday the 21st and 28th of April
