the birthday crown!

My daughter needed a new birthday crown this year, but I left it until the final hour before I had to get her from school, on the day of her birthday to remember!!!
Luckily, it's a pretty simple project, and wool felt is so forgiving! I'd thought of making a more nature inspired crown, but it has to be pink, of course, and then I found the perfect ribbon to go with it, so that no little acorn seemed to go with it. In the bottom of my sewing basket was a couple of iron-on stars, for a long forgotten project, and that seemed ideal, since she is a star to me! Maybe, for my son's birthday this year I'll make a nice green one, with an acorn on the front, but I won't leave it until the last minute to start it, I hope! :D
