I'm very happy with E's birthday crown and thought I'd share it here :)
I (with my mom's help...she did the top stitching) made E's birthday crown using wool blend felt (from Prairie Point Junction). I used the pattern and directions from The Creative Family to make the crown. To make the cake and candle, I drew the pattern on a piece of paper and cut it out. I traced around the pattern with disappearing ink onto the wool blend felt, and cut out the cake, icing, and candle. I attached them to the crown using fabric glue. This crown was surprisingly easy and fun to make!
