Felt Crown

crownI ran across these cute little crowns on Pinterest and just knew I had to make one for an friend's 4th birthday. It's a lovely, quick project that even a beginner sewist could easily make. It doesn't need much in the way of materials, and you can likely find most of what you need in your sewing room.

ready to startI found this piece of floral fabric in my stash. It was a giveaway fat eighth that I got last summer, the perfect size to make two crowns. A quick trip to Joann Fabrics and I had the felt and decorative flowers that I needed for the base. I raided my neighbor's old button collection and found the big pink buttons. I also picked up the white ribbon. Hindsight I wish I had gone with something that wouldn't show the fabric through it, but it works. I can see how it would be fun to make a bunch of different crowns like Erin did.

The Boy has asked that I make him a "King Crown." He'd like it to be "plain brown." I think he must mean gold... I have a piece of fabric in mind to dig out of my stash. I hope we're on the same page.

      Pam, I'm pretty sure you could put it all together with minimal sewing. You'd have to sew on a button and probably sew on the ends of the elastic, but you could use two-sided fusible to put the fabric onto the felt and you could even glue on any ribbon or bows you wanted to add. (I super-glued on the flower on the top.)
