I just finished Claire’s very pink birthday crown.
Hopefully she’ll still love pink for many years to come. 🙂
This felt crown was made from the pattern available in Amanda Soule’s lovely book The Creative Family. I embellished the crown with inexpensive trims, ribbons, and appliques. I made the organdy ribbon trim on the bottom edge of the crown using a “whimsy stick” from Kari Mecca’s tool line. I just wrapped the ribbon around the stick, sewed up one edge and it was pretty trim – bam! I first saw these techniques in Kari’s book More Sewing with Whimsy.
I made a similar crown for Dominic from the same basic pattern for his birthday back in February:
Had a blast!
