Birthday Crown!

My little girl is one, you guys.  ONE.  As in, it's been an entire year since the last time I will ever give birth. An entire year since her little 7 pound, 8 ounce self joined and completed our family.  Luckily, she slipped in right at the end of March and narrowly avoided a lifetime of being an April Fool's Day baby.

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.

Cake eating

Laughing maniacally

Cake flinging

Cake observation

Gift opening
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!


  1. Is there ever a time when a crown is not appropriate? Too cute!

  2. Iris is the queen of turning ONE! I just adore the crown, but your little girl is simply the cutest. I love the picture of her laughing. It looks like she really enjoyed the cupcakes. :)

  3. love this--can you make one for my 33rd? :)

  4. Bina, I would love to see you rocking one of my crowns! Just let me know when :)
