Crown Creating: Let the Summer Crafts Begin


Summer is officially here! It's that time of year when I can pretend to be a stay-at-home mom. It's just enough time for BB and I to have some fun together, but not so long that we drive each other nuts (I hope).  


OK, so I do technically have a few days of work left. But I decided to go ahead and bust out one of the summer projects I have been planning for us.... crown creating!


As you can tell from the pictures, BB had a lot of fun with this project. I asked her to draw the shape crown that she wanted. Then I cut that shape out of felt and sewed it together.

I got to use some of the fancy stitches on my sewing machine. You know, the ones that look cool on the newer high-tech machines but never actually get used.



BB chose the green felt among several colors I had laying around. I also let her rummage through my "stash" to pick out her embellishments.  She glued them on with fabric glue.

I even let her use my special fabric scissors to cut the ribbon. Daddy doesn't even get to use those ;)

This was a great project for us to do together. I can see us making a lot more magical crafts over the summer. I'm hoping to see lots more of that magical smile.
