birthday crown!

had this great old piece of wool, handmade from one of my waldorf was pretty thick and heavy duty and the perfect weight for a birthday crown!
1) lay felt flat and trace a simple crown shape (regular chalk OR fabric chalk work best and both are easily rubbed away)
2) trace lettering onto light wool or craft felt
3) cut out letters and crown and pin letters just where you want them
4) sew or glue letters in place
5) i added a few hearts and stars, a great way to customize yours esp. for your little one
6) cut a button hole and sew button carefully..make double and triple sure your button is sewn on securly since it will be in your little one's hands or dress up bin in no time!
