Yesterday we headed off to a special friend's 4th birthday party. The party was based on a princess theme and all the kids had to come dressed up as royalty. Rather than buying a costume I thought I'd pull out the sewing machine and have a go at making my own. I made a crown with felt using a template I found on the web. Then I made a cape out of panne velvet. I'm very happy with the end result! It gives you such a good feeling when your kids love the things you make for them too. Jacob didn't want to take the crown off!!
