I 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.
I 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.
