layla had been following me around repeatedly asking if we could make something together and i repeatedly replied "as soon as i caught up around here." then finally it hit me that i was never going to get completely caught up and that i was missing some quality time with my daughter. i can't begin to tell you how many times i've daydreamed about quality craft-time with my children when they were old enough. so, i stopped what i was doing and said "yes... what would you like to make?" she thought about it for about ten seconds and replied "how about a crown?" now... she was just thinking something cardboard but my mind instantly started thinking about all the cute little felt birthday crowns i've seen floating around the web. i'm not a huge felt fan but i have been thinking that i should make some out of fabric for my children.... so.... fabric crown attempt # 1. i really like the way it came out but i'm gonna make a couple more and see if i can find a simpler process. then i will share a little tutorial on here... sound good? and in the meantime i'm planning a lot more creating time with my kids... now that they're old enough.
