To commemorate the occasion, one of the regular headbands just wouldn't do. And I didn't want to make a shirt, since those priceless cake-eating photos involve a bib covering all of my handiwork. So, a crown it was.
It's comfy, so it's useful in a variety of situations. For example,
|Grabbing at fire.|
|Telling people how old you are|
|Showing off your teeth|
So there you have it! I made Little Sister wear this crown everywhere we went on her actual birthday, so that strangers would ask me, "Is it her birthday?" and I would say, "Why yes, in fact it is." Only one person asked me how old she was.
If you are interested in a crown for your child (or yourself, what the heck!) let me know! I'd be happy to make one in the colors of your choice!
