Tomorrow is Miss Raina's THIRD birthday! She's a princess loving girl right now, so I made her a birthday princess crown to proclaim er new big girl number. I seriously hope she wears it all day.
It's made from felt and sequins, held together with some thread and glue. So simple. I found a template on the interwebs (searched under "princess crown template"), traced it on felt (Sparkly felt!), then cut around slightly larger on a new color for the basic crown shape. I stuck in a piece of elastic sandwiched in some bias tape for the back, then sewed around the whole thing. Some of my stitching around the top circle-like parts is a little wonky, but I don't mind :) It's decorated with felt hearts, and since I love you I'll tell you that they were pre-cut felt shapes. No work for me! I did hand-cut the big number 3 emblem in the center, though :) I attached the felt decorations with hot glue, then added some sequins for some extra pizzaz. Ta-da!
