My fabric stash is bursting with so much turquoise and various shades of blue. It's one of my favourite colours right now - especially for kids. And I love to mix greens and blues together. So when I saw this fabric, I just had to have it. I'm already regretting not buying more of it!!

Some of my favourite things to sew are dress up clothes and dramatic play props for my kids. I love to watch them get whisked away to another world of pretend play. And this fabric is so versatile.

The crown is quite feminine. It's perfect for a queen or even a fairy princess. I would have loved a crown like this when I was a little girl. But, I have two boys so I wanted to make it a bit more 'uni-sex' - fit for a king as well. So I made it reversible:

The pairing of the turquoise with deep red is just so playful and vibrant.

I added a little applique and hand stitching...

...and a velcro closure on the back so that it would fit different sizes of heads (even mine! Sh! Don't tell).


  1. I love it! Brilliant idea to make it reversible. Another job well done! ;)

  2. Love this crown! My little guy has been getting more and more interested in dramatic play - this would be a perfect addition! Thanks for sharing :)
