My son's third birthday party was this Saturday and true to form, I started this project ONE HOUR before the party.  Good thing it was really quick.  I thought he should have a special crown to wear when he opened his presents, so I whipped this up. 

The outside is made of chalkboard vinyl, which is amazingly awesome stuff.  I was a little wary when I saw it in the store.  I thought that the chalk wouldn't write on it well or show up well, or that it would get that cloudy look, so I just bought a remnant for $2. But after using it, I was pleasantly surprised, and I'll def go back and get more.  The inside is a part of a FQ, and I used some fusible interfacing just to bulk it up a little.  Since I used the interfacing I just top stitched the two pieces together, I don't think the cotton will fray much.  I did some velcro on the back so that its adjustable.  I'd love to hear what you all think.

I've used the chalkboard vinyl for portable chalkboards, but I never would have thought of this!  Great idea!!
