We are celebrating the Queen’s Jubilee the Buttonbag craft way at the world’s first virtual craft street party!
Who needs Madame Tussauds? If you can’t face the queue, why not create your own stunning life-like Queen in felt? You can even sew a corgi too, and it won’t melt in the sun. You will also save yourself £60 on a family ticket. All the more to spend on craft kits!
How to get started. We based our Jublilee felt Queen on the patterns in our Mme Jolie craft kit. She is made from felt, lightly padded, and held together with small but firm handstitches.
We have given her two different outfits, one for state occasions, and one for corgi walking and crowd waving.If you want to make your own Jubilee Queen we have 5 Mme Jolie kits to give away in our Jubilee Craft competition. To enter, just answer this simple question: What is the Queen’s favourite colour? Either email or tweet us the answer and we will announce the winners on Thursday.
