A Birthday Crown

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?

  1. What a great idea! I love this one that you’ve made. It is so adorable.

    • Thank you Heather! We are so happy with how well it turned out – and it’s really easy if you know how to sew (my MIL did all the sewing on this one because it required straight lines and I’m still a, ahem, beginner :)).
