Ideas for your coronation design
Depending on your confidence, there are a number of designs you could go for. If you’re just a beginner, we’d recommend following an
established, purchased pattern. If, however, you are more practised, then perhaps you could sketch some designs yourself before
picking up the needle and thread. Maybe try some text in your design - something simple like; “The coronation of King Charles, Westminster Abbey, 6th May 2023”. Or, you could make references to the national
anthem - “God save the king”, or “happy and glorious”. Space the text out around the fabric so that you can stitch pictures onto it too. Royal objects you could recreate in thread are a crown (of course), a simple version of the abbey or even a Jack Russell Terrier (the King’s dog breed of choice). And, when it comes to colours, consider using golds and dark purples to bring a regal feeling to the whole design.
