I have been preparing for BB's second birthday! I can not believe he is going to be 2!! Craziness!!
I just love the idea of a special birthday crown and have seen quite a few in the blogosphere. I rummaged through my stash and found the yellowy gold piece of felt that I had made. I realized that it would make the perfect crown.
I needed extra length so I cut the square in half and sewed the two pieces together to make one long strip of felt. My impatience got the best of me and I ended up cutting the crown design free hand, with no pattern late at night with the dullest scissors ever. So it is perfectly imperfect which I love.
|I ironed and blocked the felt to help flatten it out.|
I added a little hill to the bottom of the toadstool so it wasn't floating in mid air. I added dots of color to the tips of each point and all around the body of the crown. I wanted to keep it simple. I love love love how this came out. It is so cute! I have already started planning next years crown.
