Crowning Glory...

I've had this idea in my head for a while now and yesterday began working on it.
"Crowning Glory"
I know crowns have been around for ages and I've seen many screen printed versions which I have loved.
But, I thought a Shabby Chic one was called for.
So I dug out my stash of Rachel Ashwells' "Wildflower" fabric and set to work.
This is how it turned out.


I handsewed the pearl trim and freshwater pearls on and hand ruffled the organza ribbon.
I love it. I think I will have to make a few more.
Lots' of Shabby cushions have been added to the website and Etsy
My Mum was thrilled to know that her fox was on yesterday's post.
Thank you for all of your lovely comments.
Only today left to enter the giveaway...
