When it comes to Downton Abbey, I stand firmly on Team Dowager. From the very first episode, I have been utterly smitten with Dame Maggie Smith’s crotchety character, and find myself wanting to high five and/or kiss her at least twice an episode. Are you crushing too? Head over to FaveCrafts to download my printable Team Dowager badge template, and show the Right Honourable Violet Crawley, Countess of Grantham some love! (Mind you, I strongly discourage any activity that might involve putting the printable in your pipe and smoking it.)

Now that we’ve been talking nerdy for a few weeks, I’m sure it will come as no surprise to you that I’m completely obsessed with Downton Abbey. Not a day goes by that I don’t find myself wanting to hug Mr. Bates, scream at Lady Mary, or kiss the Dowager Countess full on the mouth! If you feel the same way, here’s a little something to keep you occupied while you wait for season three to start. I mean, who can resist the Dowager Countess and her amazing hats?!
Print the Team Dowager hat template on cardstock and cut it out with your paper scissors. Then, using a permanent marker, fill in the hat shape with the color of your choice.
Select your first embroidery floss color and fasten one end to the back of the template with scotch tape. Thread your embroidery needle with the free end…
