Every Little Girl needs a Crown.

Making your Crown

{If you wish to embellish the crown do so before sewing ends. Making sure not to get too close the sewing area}

Fold Crown in half and sew along ends with ¼ inch seam {Scalloped} or as pattern shows {Pointed}

Flip seam to inside and glue down excess.

With needle and thread sew a gathering stitch along bottom about ¼ inch in from edge

ImagePull tread tight, gathering bottom. Tie off thread and cut excess

ImagePress crown down on flat surface until sides flare and the bottom is flat

ImageAssembling your Crown

Placing headband base on surface apply generous amounts of Hot Glue in center moving out.

Take Crown with seam centered in the back and press down on to base.

Continue to glue crown to base until completely attached.

Using the second circle, fit test and trim to cover inside, then glue down using Hot Glue.

Each crown is super lightweight and durable.

You can experiment with other edges or even fuse fabric to the felt. I have done this with lace edging and it does look cute.

*******If you choose lace, use an applique mat between the lace and your iron (available at most craft stores) so that you don’t gum up your iron. The hand sewing is tougher too as it is thicker and the fusing material sticks to the needle. *******

ImageThese dainty little crowns are certain to add…
