    I think my grandson would love to be a prince. Great Idea. Or maybe King of the Castle.

  7. Kristin says:

    I love this – it is definitely on my list of things to make for my daughter.

  8. Stephanie says:

    Thanks for sharing these crown tutorials they will come in handy when I get around to making one for my son.

  9. My grand daughters would love these. They play dress up all the time and mostly with princess costumes.

  10. Krista says:

    This is a fantastic idea!!

  11. Andiette says:

    OOH. This would totally go with the birthday shirt I make each year for my kids!

    these are so cute! My kids would love them.

    Very cute crown…I don’t have any little ones but most of my friends are just getting married it would be a great way to distinguish the bride at the bridal shower and a great base to tie bows to. Very cute.

  17. Raheli says:

    There are so many birthdays in my family this month… I might actually bust my scrap pile!

  18. Deb Cameron says:

    Super sweet, I’m sure it will come with Super Fairy Powers – I will have to make a matching wand 🙂

  19. I like this crown in the cotton as opposed to the felt – wool or otherwise. I think it would wash and wear better this way!

  20. Liz says:

    My girls would love if I produced a crown for their princess heads!

  21. liz says:

  22. Andrea says:

    These are great! I saw something similar at our library recently, and my daughter loved them. I’ve been wanting to make her one… Now you’ve saved me much of the brain work that would have been involved. So now I have no excuse…

    Love this crown! I have, in fact, used scraps to make my mom a crown for her 60th birthday a couple of years ago. You can see what I made (plus a rambling detailed post about some construction issues I had) right here:


  44. Melissa says:

  52. Lorrie says:

    very cute idea!

  53. Pam says:

    I love this. Wish I had thought of that when my girls were smaller. Maybe I will remember it when I become a grandma.

  54. Krystina says:

    I forgot to mention, I got the knitting pattern (in case anyone is interested) from an old Interweave magazine… here is the link: http://www.interweaveknits.com/preview/2006_summer.asp.

    It was super easy and the crown turned out awesome.

  55. Krystina says:

    I made a knitted crown for my son for his first birthday. Maybe I can make a fabric one for my daughter! I never thought of sewing one until now, but it will probably hold up much better than the knitted crown.
