This past Sunday we had a birthday party for Rohan. For as much stress it was having and planning for 15 people in our tiny city apartment it was a lot of fun.
When we first started planning the party we were thinking of doing a where’s the wild thing theme. But that quickly fell through the cracks and it became a non themed party with felt crowns. And to our surprise people actually wore the crowns!
To make crowns for 15 people I bought 1 yard of golden yellow felt.I made up a quick crown pattern using cardboard and copied and cut out 15 crowns. I thought about making the crowns with two layers of felt but after cutting out what I needed and seeing what was left I knew I didn’t have enough felt. So I decided to back the crowns with the next best thing. My precious fabric. At first I thought I would only do a few. And then I thought about how that wasn’t fare to others so I made all 15 with fabric backings. I used the felt crows as templates this time around. I even got crafting cat to come help. She’s pretty shy cat but if I am sewing she is always near by. I used pinking shears to cut my fabric. I didn’t want the fabric to fray. To finish the crowns I topstiched the fabric to the crowns, folded the ends together towards the inside and sewed them closed. I trimmed any excess off and bam! Birthday crowns!
Happy birthday sweet pea!
