As an "elder millennial" Anastasia was one of my favourite animations growing up... probably I was "too old" for it when it came out but I love that movie. So we now bring you the Anastasia and Shvibzik (Imp) Kokshniks! For a crown made of card stock and fabrics she really is VERY comfortable to wear, doesn't slip or move about, so comfortable in fact I may have checked the post box without taking it off.

The very cool thing about this pattern is that it is also reversible! So make one for yourself and pretend to be the Grand Dutchess, or one for you mini and live vicariously, either way this pattern is totally worth the price of admission.

Welcome to Cake & Ale! Our mission is all about combining the charm of traditional quilting with a fresh, modern twist. We're here to bring you patterns that you can lovingly handcraft using techniques passed down through generations. But guess what? You don't need to dedicate weeks to these projects – you can finish them up in just one weekend!

Now, if you're new to the world of hand sewing, don't worry. We've got your back. We're all about something called English Paper Piecing (EPP). This technique involves wrapping fabric around paper templates, kind of like creating a snug little fabric hug around them. This gives you the foundation to create these seriously intricate and spot-on shapes.

Once you've got these fabric-covered templates, it's like putting together a puzzle. You stitch them up, piece by piece, to form a work of art that looks like you spent ages on it. It's like magic, but with needle and thread.

So, whether you're a seasoned stitcher or just dipping your toes into the world of hand sewing, we're here to provide you with patterns that marry tradition and innovation. Get ready to create pieces that will leave everyone thinking you're a crafting rockstar – all in the span of a weekend!

*** FAQ's ***

Do you I need a laminator?
No you don't, this is just a technique you can use if your printer does not like printing on card stock (like mine).

What weight card stock is best?
If you can print on card we recommend that a stock 220GSM - 250GSM be used, it needs enough bulk to hold the sides up but you also need to work within your own comfort zone.

Do I really leave the papers in?
YES!! Unlike traditional EPP our card stock templates stay in permanently. This is what creates, and holds the structure of our unique patterns together.
