And other reasons I have been busy are because of all the events...
Like Mardi Gras (of course on the family day)...
I made this Mardi Gras Tutu last year. Momo wore it as a dress last year, but is is a skirt this year. Boy, she is growing!
Then the biggest event of all...
Momo's big 4th Birthday!!!
My little girl is 4! And she insists on being called a "Big Girl" :)
We had a small party for her at home. Momo was so set on having a Frozen birthday party, but them changed her mind a week before her birthday and wanted to have My Little Pony party instead. It was kind of a mess planning this party, because everything kept changing...date, place, guests, and the theme... I am not big on throwing parties, but it was worth having it becaue Momo LOVED it!
Jump and grab the balloon!
The night before her birthday, I realized the birthday girl did not have the birthday hat. I thought about making a cone hat, but this is a princess girl...she needed a birthday crown! I needed something quick and easy. Luckily I had everything I needed...felt, elastic, and trims.
So here is what I did to make the felt crown:
Cut out the 2 felt pieces n desired crown shape. For reference my pink crown is about 9-inch width. The yellow one is about 8-inch width.
After hand-sewing the opening, decorate the crown with whatever you want...felt cut-outs, pompoms, ric-rac, ribbon, buttons... I hot-glued everything,
Momo loved her birthday crown, so I made her this yellow one. Those pompoms on the crown are her favorites. Now she can be a princess anytime she wants...not that she needs a crown to be a princess ;)
Linking up to those fun parties.
