tutorial how to make a felted crown and Happy Birthday, Carlota!

Hello again, dear readers!
August is finish and it is the beginning of a new year ...
always, every year, for me September is the beginning ...
I guess many of you also think the same.
Have you had a good summer?
I wish yeeeeeeeeeeeesssssssssss! 

I have not been on holiday but August have been dedicated
to my daughter and a few days also preparing his birthday party.
Today I show you some things I've done during the month of August.

I start doing the t-shirt on night before the party. 
( yeeeeeeeees... as always in the last moment... )
So the day of the birthday party t-shirt applique
was not sewn, just stuck! hahahahahahha!
At night, after the birthday party, when the t-shirt
was all dirty of chocolate I sewed applique before
to put the t-shirt in the washing machine ....

For my daughter's birthday I also wanted to make a birthday crown.
I did not know how I could do it, I had not ever done any other...
But I make one birthday crown a very simple and easy
and now I tell you how I did it.

tutorial how to make a felted crown
1- I used a template of crown that last year made ​​Montse ( here )
and I drawed two templates ( I used pink  and intense pink )

2- I cut the two templates and I prepare a fabric with the number 3
for to use as applique in the crown 

3- I pasted the applique in a felted and sewed around

4- superimpose the two templates,  fasten with pins,
and sewed with sewing machine all around.
Also I sew a Velcro band on the back.

And for decorate if you want some decorative ribbon, buttons, etc.
I put a crochet star of Christmas, too! 

With the remains of felt I make crowns
for children who are going to the birthday party.
Very simple and easy, too!

To make these small birthday crowns with elastic tape:
cut  48-50 cm of elastic tape (for children aged 3-6 years)
and as you can see in the photo, sew felted
and one pretty ribbon in this elastic tape.
Finally, sew on the back with sewing machine
 for finalize to the crown. Easy, right?

This year I make a lot of things: he birthday crowns,
the t-shirt of 3  years, some garlands ...
A lot of work but work done with love is a great pleasure!

My personal assistant also wanted to participate
in decorating their birthday party.
She really enjoyed helping mom!

Really, It was a lovely party and the kids enjoyed a lot.
But it's TRUE: a child is more happy with a cardboard box
than with other toy... a cardboard box is sooooo much fun!

Oh, finally, the cake! Also I did!

The three chocolate cake, really delicious!
Was a great success! You have the recipe here

Moltíssimes Felicitats,

 in a days she start at school ...
a big change in his life that I want it to be satisfying
like last year she enjoyed in the kindergarten ...
