Princess Crowns ♥

Now tell me....

What little girl wouldn't like one of these?
 These were a lot of fun to make!  Easy and quick too.  

 I'd seen these before in blog land and even on Etsy.  I had a basic pattern that I followed the first couple of times but I made a few changes to make it more to my liking.  
 I wanted to be able to thread a ribbon through it so I added a row of double crochet to the base.  I thought long streams of ribbon would be so pretty on the back of one of the toddler crowns.  I can just see this on a little girl with long curly hair.  
 These are used as photo props so I made some for baby boys too.  
 Infant size...
 Purple is a royal color so I made a purple toddler one.  
 And added a pretty white bow.
And you know I had to make a pink one.  
 Pink is always so sweet!  
 I added a little ribbon and a few pearls to make it even sweeter.  
 Yes, the funnest part of making these is embellishing them.  
 These work up so quickly you'll want to make several of them in all different colors and sizes.

It's a great way to use up those remnants of yarn leftover from previous projects.  Here's a few links to some basic patterns to get you started.  And by the way, they're FREE!!!!
