Every girl needs a crown!!!!

So crowns aren't new to this crafty, creative blog world......
But I've never attempted to make one.....until now..thanks to....
My sweet friend Amy, at Mittens....she makes beautiful crowns for her doll heads. And if I'm honest, which I am, I'll admit that I was just a little bit jealous of them. I had a doll who has a "bad hair day" every day.
She needed some help...so with Amy's inspiration I made my first crown ever. I think "Ruby" is happy now, and feels that she has finally "arrived".
Now.....about her little friend in the background...hmmmm

Oh yay!
It turned out beautiful and it definitely fits your style perfectly! Glad I could inspire some creative juices.
We should have a crown blogging party.
Get everyone to make a crown and join in.

Gail, your crown is fabulous!!! See, it doesn't hurt to try. You might have a lot of glue on your fingers but you did it!

Amy inspires us all, doesn't she? She is the reason I started sewing again!!!

Ruby is a beauty- I love the idea of making crowns for all my doll heads- maybe even changing them out with the seasons.

Oh , what a happy girl she must be to have such a gorgeously adorned crown!! Did you do all of the ribbon flowers by hand Gail?
Lovely, Lovely.
