i had to clean my room this weekend, so i decided to make a tiara for the occasion- and i am now in love with felting, so i decided to knit and felt myself a tiara- i made up the pattern for it as i went along-

i'm only half way through embroidering it, and eventually i'm going to put some red beads on it-

here i am wearing it (with my greasy hair)

i think i'll add another picture of it once i'm finished

yup thats it- i think i'm going to make more with a slightly different pattern (my little cousin already wants one)-
ideas of changes, or comments are definitely welcome

I love this! Shocked

I thought I was the only one goofy enought to clean with a crown.  Just makes it all feel better.

That's cool.

Way to make an occasion out of the mundane!

i'm excited- i just finished embroidering it and adding beads to it- i'm fairly happy with it (i'll post a picture tommorow-hopefully) i pretty much want to wear it everywhere now (and sing haha i'm the queen of everything- but thats besides the point) i'm planning on making a batch of tiaras later this summer and giving them out to friends, as you said- every girl should have a tiara Grin especially when she has to clean her room for the first time in a month
