You may recall during January and early February I was busy fashioning costumes for Immy’s dress up box in time for her birthday. Whilst sorting through some photos I recently, I realised that I had never actually posted the tutorial for the simple birthday crown I made for her birthday celebration. So here it is…
Step one: Cut two front crown pieces from felt. I used a very simple design.
Step two: Decorate the front of one crown piece. I used felt hearts, ironed on with fusible webbing, and silver satin ribbon which I stitched into place.
Step three: Cut a piece of fusible webbing slightly smaller than the crown piece. Place on the rear of the piece you have decorated. Do not iron into place yet.
Step four: Measure the circumference of your child’s head. From this measurement, subtract the width measurement of the crown piece, then subtract a further centimetre. Cut a piece of wide elastic the length of your adjusted measurement. Stitch firmly into position to the second felt crown piece.
Step five: Place the two felt front pieces together with the fusible webbing in between. Iron to fuse the webbing and attach the two pieces.
