I sat down and cut out about a million butterflies one day not long ago, in lots of colors, and as I sat there admiring the beautiful pile of delicate wings and bodies I wondered, “what am I going to do with these?” Cause I have this problem of getting ahead of myself when I’m working. I throw myself into a project and start brainstorming, then my imagination gets cranked up, after a while the creativity high crashes and there I sit in a pile of materials ready to do…. Hmmm. Since I’m on a crown kick of course I leaned towards a party theme.
Using a tiny cross-stitch in the center of each butterfly I stitched them onto a blank crown piece I had lying about from some earlier burst of production madness, and I must say the resulting butterfly crown is LOVELY. It has been very popular on Etsy, featured in many treasuries, “favorited” a hundred times, and sales have been good too! 🙂 But did I stop there? NO. I had too many butterflies!
Next up, matching butterfly party hats!
I stiffen my felt party hats so they retain their shape, then I stitch a thin, soft elastic strap to the base. These hats would look gorgeous adorning the birthday feast table awaiting guests!
What’s a birthday party without a banner?
All of my birthday crowns can be customized. Just because a banner, wand, or coordinated party hat isn’t in my shop doesn’t mean you can’t have it! I love custom orders. Being a mother of three, add to that a mother of a special needs child, sewing time can be difficult to work into my schedule! So while I make what I can my mind is overstocked with ideas and your custom orders give me an opportunity to make some of those ideas come to life!

Ding! Ding! Ding! Come and get it! If your imagination is hungry, come and see what I’m cookin’ up for you! On the table today are dragon wings! Dragons come in all colors, and I have certainly embraced a rainbow with these wings! Bright felt wings have decorative stitching in a bright contrasting color. These wings are individual wings with velcro arm straps. They are a one size fits all imaginations! I use a stiff interfacing in the wings in place of wire, so you never have to worry about the wire ends poking through. This also ensures they will not bend out of shape! If you get a wrinkle in your wing simply iron (use a hot setting AND a pressing cloth! If you place your hot iron directly onto felt it may melt and potentially ruin your iron and your wings!) Wings and flying are great and all, but what are dragons famous for? Oh right, BREATHING FIRE. These fabulous wings come with three FIRE BALLS for your fire breathing pleasure. Made of soft yarn, these puffs are handmade with love and are mostly safe for throwing in the house! Even a yarn ball can knock stuff down, but it won’t put out any eyes or break t.v.’s, lol.
I love opinions! Do you like my design? Would your kids like to wear these? Are you interested in larger size options? I can make them for adults, too! Check out my listings on Etsy!
