The first crown didn’t last long. It was made of a paper plate and was a little small for V anyway. I made another one at my parents’ house over the Thanksgiving holiday week, but that lasted even shorter than the first.

So it was time to make something more sturdy. I thought I might sew something since I have a lot of pretty materials, but when I looked online for ideas I found an even better idea: felt.

Since I happen to have a few pieces of felt in my material stash, I used only a couple of colors and added some “jewels” that were from crown #2. I put an elastic band in the back with some pink material.

This is by far the prettiest of the crowns that I’ve made, but surprisingly, V isn’t that interested in it. Well, it’s in her toy bin for when she feels the need to wear it.
