It's January and my little princess' birthday is approaching. I think she deserves a little bit of mama-mades for her first birthday, don't you? I'm a procastinator, I always delay until the last minute to do things..and it doesn't help that I'm the worst organiser on the planet...it think this time i'll record my progress on her birthday prep, just to motivate myself...
ok here goes..
I'm starting with her birthday crown...the pattern is the same as Adam's birthday crown (from the book - The Creative Family)
I am using wool felt here instead of the usual craft felt. If you can get access to wool felt, I certainly recommend it. To be honest when I bought the felt I was just testing, I didn't think it would make that much of a difference. But it does. The texture is so much more stable, dense, smooth and just a dream to work with. I would imagine it would withstand long wearing and much chewing and yanking too. The crown can be kept for many birthdays to come.
The result. A crown fit for a princess, no less.
