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.
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.
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!!!!
