a royal crown

I was at my friends house last night and her 3 year old daughter had a jar of change she said she was saving to buy a crown.  Her dollar store one had broken and the princess was in need of a new crown!  I asked her if she would like me to make one for her and she said "yes!"  I asked her favorite color and what she wanted on her crown and then headed home to see what I could create. 
As I looked through my fabric and trim supplies late last night I just had to start sewing right then.  It didn't take long to pull this little crown together.  There are a ton of tutorial out their for making crowns, so I wont bore you with too many details.  I've made crowns before out of felt, but I don't like how the felt gets pilly, so I used cotton and lined it with felt to make it stand up.  I got the button closure idea here.
Emmaline was happy to model for me this morning :)

Addie and I dropped the crown off after preschool this afternoon and Mercy was thrilled her new tiara - she even did a few twirls for us.  I meant to take my camera along, but totally forgot!

I think these would be wonderful to add to you craft show items. Every little girl NEEDS one!
Very cute!

That should have been "your" not you.
I am not sure what I am doing when I add a comment. The little prove you're not a robot things I can never read. Love, Mom
