    Birthday Crown

    Today is my niece's first birthday, and her mom is having a 'Princess Party'. She is the only girl in this generation of kids (out of 7 boy cousins, she is the ONLY girl in the family since her mom, who is the youngest of the parents)

    I saw these adorable sewn crowns online for sale, but thought, "$30?? I can MAKE one! It's just quilting with embellisments!! So I did! I'll find out this afternoon at the party if the mom likes it. Fingers crossed!!

    Why do I keep trying to find the "like" button?

    Thanks ladies! I'm proud of it. It took me a few tries of drawing the pattern; I got the point angles wrong the first time, then forgot the seam allowance the second time (d'Oh!!) But I kept the final 'good' one, so now I can make more if I want to.

    Isn't it a great feeling when you can do it yourself and save those big bucks for something more suitable! Great job. I'm sure it will be a treasured 1st Birthday gift!

    Just a quick update: Though she wouldn't keep the crown on her head (we did get a few pics I'll add later) it fit her PERFECTLY!! I was so proud!! I was using my 4 1/2 year old son as a pattern size, and guessing how much smaller it needed to be for her.

    All of the older girls at the party (and some of the boys) kept popping it back on her head every time she took it off. Proud Auntie moment!!

    Oh goodness...how cute. I've seen them crocheted before, but never like this. I love it. I'm glad she liked it.
    enjoy your life...it's the only one you have!!!
