The image at the top of the blog post comes from Romeo and Juliet with Dolls. In fact, it’s a still shot from one of the stop motion scenes, right before the actors (dolls) begin to fight in the streets, fencing with swords.
The lady on the right is the character of Rosaline, from Romeo and Juliet with Dolls. She’s wearing a handmade tiara, for which I’ll be giving you the free, printable PDF sewing pattern today.
This pattern has been available here on ChellyWood.com for a number of years now, but as it dates back to the early days of this blog (when it was more of a personal journal than the free-pattern library it has become today), it’s a fairly simplistic pattern. And today I’m publishing it as a PDF for the first time, as it was only available as a JPG image in the past.
To make this tiara, you’ll need some 1/8 inch ribbon, solid cotton fabric, 1/4 inch elastic, some craft foam, a chenille stem (AKA pipe cleaner), and tulle or ribbon made of tulle (for the puffy stuff on top).
Today’s patterns will fit these dolls:
- Queens of Africa Dolls
- Momoko dolls
- modern and Made-to-Move Barbie dolls
- vintage Barbie dolls
- vintage Francie dolls
- Liv dolls
- Disney Princess dolls
Here are your free, printable PDF sewing patterns and tutorial videos for making the tiara shown at the top of this page:
