This was wrapped last week. I have been saving some gorgeous cord scraps because they are just too lovely to throw away but they have outstayed their welcome now in the craft cupboard.
The pattern is from the Make it Today website which is free to download and the pattern is on three sheets of A4 so not too arduous to printout.
I cut out eight crown pieces in cord, eight in lining, one peck in cord and one in co-ordinating cord along with a crown band. I saved a piece off the scraps pile to cover a button before tossing the little pile on the left into the bin with a satisfactory goodbye.
I added the tie twist instead of a bow. It is not for me, it is for someone much younger, 27 years younger in fact! It is for a teenager who can carry off this Austin Powers groovy vibe.
Anyway it was fun to make and wear for a moment. I have a tweed one cut out from my waistcoat sewing scraps so I will keep the next one for myself.
Thanks for looking. Jo xxxx
