Birthday Crowns

12 Jan

Something I do for every birthday of my three children is make them a birthday crown.  When they were small I would design it myself but as the kids get older they get to tell me the colours and fabrics that they prefer.  I have a series of photos from the past years with the birthday crowns and they are great to look back on and see how much they’ve changed and grown.  My daughters display all of their crowns on the top of the bookcase in their room.

This year my daughters turn 10 in March and I’m already wondering what kind of special crown I can make to commemorat them turning double digits.  I vow to sew these crowns for many years to come.  When my son turns 34 he will be receiving an envelope from his mama with a homemade crown.  Whether he likes it or not.
