I made these crowns for my niece Charlie and three of her little friends who all turned 2 withing 2 weeks of one another.  They had a joint birthday party in the park and I thought the crowns would be a fun addition to the celebration.  (I know that one of the crowns isn't lined up properly and it is driving me NUTS.  My husband kindly tells me that nothing handmade is perfect and that I need to let it go, but golly, stuff like that bugs me.)



The crowns are sewn, embroidered and/or felted.  There is a piece of elastic covered in fabric on the back, so one size fits all.  I also put a stabilizer between the layers and some heat n' bond to help fuse it all together before stitching it.

This is the crown I am working on now, for Rowan who is turning 4.  I made the doodads with Sculpey clay, and I felted the little colorful circles.  I think it needs a little something more, so I will work on that in the morning before his mother comes to pick it up.





I especially like this little alien guy.  Don't really know who/what he is, but I dig him...



Happy, happy, they make me happy!  

Thanks for taking a lookie-look.   Wink
