One final craft for the Jubilee this weekend, something quick and simple to make, and a great keepsake! Some cute and easy cross-stitch crowns. You can even make up your own designs.
I’ve been cross-stitching for a long time now. I like to refer to it as my gateway craft!
To make these, I honestly just drew out a basic crown shape and went from there; which also means if you’re even a little creative, you can modify these to your hearts content!
We are mid-celebrations at this point! Our plans are a family and friends BBQ at Stu’s Mum’s place, so we shall all be having a lovely time, and basically enjoying the excuse to relax and celebrate together in the sun. Although it is a long weekend, I am (of course) working for a couple of days, but hoping to make the most of my days off!
Are you doing anything to celebrate this week?
Easy Cross-Stitch Crowns
I made two of these, just as something cute to keep, as a memento of the Jubilee celebrations. Several could be made, to make some stitched bunting, or even used on disolvable aida to add a stitched monogram to anything!
These are actually both stitched on white… I don’t know why the colour has gone so weird on the red one.
Part of me wishes I’d thought ahead enough to have coloured aida, I quite like the idea of doing some on red and blue fabric too. For the designs, I just drew on some graph paper, and tried to keep things reasonably simple.
