Blog with Friends - Creative Cupids - King and Queen of Hearts Crowns



Welcome to this month's Blog with Friends post!! This month we are the Creative Cupids and will be bringing you tons of Valentine's Day fun!!





For my part, I will be showing you how to make these King and Queen of Hearts Crowns. Just because I used a sewing machine doesn't mean YOU have to. You can use a glue gun or fabric glue to achieve something similar. 

WHAT I USED

Sheets of felt in Valentine's Day colors
Iron on interfacing
Iron on stars
Plastic gems
Flower trim


STEP 1

Cut one piece of felt in half.



STEP 2



Sew the ends together.
Fold in half and sew a long seam.
Turn right side out.


STEP 3



Take a sheet of felt and cut the interfacing to fit. Iron on the interfacing.


STEP 4



Fold the piece in half and cut out 1 large heart.
Repeat until you have 2 large hearts with interfacing and 2 large hearts without interfacing.

Then cut 2 smaller hearts with interfacing and 2 smaller hearts without interfacing. 

In a different color, cut 4 hearts without interfacing. These will need to fit on top of 2 large hearts and 2 smaller hearts. 


STEP 5

Now, take your hearts and put 1 interfaced heart with one heart without interfacing, matching up the sizes.

Sew together with a close zigzag stitch.


STEP 6



Place the other color hears on top and zigzag stitch in to place.


STEP 7



Measure the long thin piece to fit your child's head.
Cut and sew the ends together.


STEP 8



Add embellishments to the hearts. 


STEP 9 




Glue the hearts to the band and add embellishments.

With the pink crown, I cut 1 large heart with interfacing and 1 without. Then I cut 2 smaller hearts with interfacing and 2 without. 

ALL DONE!!

  4. These are so cute. I wish that I was talented enough to sew. I have done a few things and they turned out great. I just don't sew very often.
