Birthday Crafts.

I have been super busy this last week, getting ready all the projects that I wanted to sew for my daughter's birthday. I decided to try something new and work with felt! I have decided that I love it. It is so easy to work with.

I made this Princess/Elmo/Birthday Hat for my daughter. She loves everything Elmo, hence the hat being in Elmo colors.

Birthday Hat

I used this tutorial. I realized that the hat is a little big, but then she can wear it for years to come!

Then I decided, somewhat at the last minute, to make a Happy Birthday banner with all the left over felt. Well, I knew that I wanted to use ric rac (love it) and embroider but that was about it. This is what I came up with.

for my daughter

I was thinking of maybe posting a tutorial of how to make this, what do you think??

It is really long, I had to find some interesting ways to photograph it.


Well everything turned out great and I was really happy with everything. My daughter really didn't want to wear the hat so I gave her a cookie so she would sit still.
