Since the birth of my daughter, I have been in search for a birthday crown that she can wear year after year. It needed to be a timeless crown that could grow with her into her pre-teen years (a mom can wish!). I also preferred it to be homemade, but this mama had no idea where to start. Then inspiration struck while visiting Mosey Handmade over at Etsy. Alas, I had found the perfect thing… a felt crown with ribbon ties! With no sewing machine, I was tempted to purchase one – afterall, they are adorable – but I still wanted it to be something I put together and created, personally, with D in mind.
Knowing we had an impending visit with a mother-in-law who, you guessed it, has a sewing machine, I did a little pleading, we did a little shopping and, voila, a crown was made specially for D. I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out and it was a fun little project for mama and Gigi to boot.
So, starting with her third birthday, we will have a crown to don proudly. Better late than never, right?
