Tutorial for Tiaras & Headpieces

Hello!  We’ve had some requests to make a tutorial for our tiara and headpiece embroidery files…so here you go!  This method could work with free-hand embroidery too, or with any design that you digitize yourself.


– Fabric for background – anything opaque including gabardine, satin, and velvet.
– Dress stiffener or extra-heavy interfacing.  We recommend S80 Vilene or Pellon 70 (or 72). Fusible optional but not necessary.
– 1/4-inch wide ribbon (8-12 inches), for bobby pin loops
Embroidery file
-Tear-away or wash-away embroidery stabilizer
– Embroidery topper, such as Solvy, if working with velvet
