I can’t believe my little girl is one. It is extremely bittersweet for me. I love that she is healthy and growing and changing and learning new things, but on the other hand, she’s my baaaaaaaaayyyybeeeee!!
I think I will always think of her like this.
As much as I have begged asked her to stay my tiny sweet little baby, she has insisted on growing over the last year into our sweet little one year old.
Ummmm . . . . just in case you missed it . . . check out this 10 month face.
Ha!! I love Quinny.
To celebrate her birthday at home with just our sweet little family, I decided to make her a felt birthday crown.
When I say this is an easy project, what I mean to say is that it is so easy, I did it the morning of Quinn’s birthday while making my whole family breakfast. And no, it’s not that I’m just that awesome. It really is easy.
I started with a piece of craft felt from JoAnns. This pretty pink polkadot one was about a dollar, but the solid colors are even less.
I drew a little crown like shape on the back with pen, and then folded it in half and cut, so that it would be symmetrical. (I wish I had more pictures too . . . but remember, birthday excitement, making breakfast, and making birthday crown . . . ) If you look closely at this picture, you can actually still see some of the pen.
Then I just sewed on elastic to one side, measured it up to Quinn’s head, cut the elastic to fit, pinned, and sewed the other side. You wouldn’t even need a sewing machine for this, you could easily hand sew it.
Then I hot glued on a little number one that I cut out of more craft felt free hand. I actually cut out two number ones and sandwiched them on because one was a bit thin. And voila! A pretty birthday crown for my baby.
