The Elf and the Crown Maker

Where is my little elf when I need him??? My sewing machine is smokin’ from all the work going on! Check out some of the cool custom orders recently received:

The green dragon is definitely my favorite. The wings are three dimensional, popping off the edge of the crown and up into the air! The fire is also a three dimensional feature, and the dragon is trying to light the candle on a cupcake. This crown can be customized. Replace the cupcake with a castle, a damsel in distress, a mauled animal, I don’t know! Contact me to discuss the possibilities!

Tiny Tails To You Petting Zoo, Woo WHo!

A month or so ago I posted about the wonderful petting zoo story time we went to at Book People! Well that was a fortuitous day! I talked with the owner of the petting zoo, Tiny Tails to You, about my Etsy shop and the birthday crowns and other items I make. We decided I would make themed birthday crowns to go with her petting zoo! Enter the hedgehog crown:

Seeing Red!

Recently I was contacted through my Etsy shop by a woman wanting a custom designed birthday party package. I make all sorts of party crowns, coordinating guest crowns and hats, birthday banners, and other party items. She was inspired by the red, personalized birthday crown for her daughter:

Red Felt Birthday Crown Personalized with Initial or Number

From this crown she told me she liked red and orange together, and asked if I could make ribbon tie party crowns for the guests with that color scheme? The twist being she was looking for crowns to coordinate with her daughter’s party, but also to be special occasion crowns for her family to wear during holidays and birthdays. She asked that I make them a suitable size for adults, and gussy up the ribbon tie crowns with appliques. I knew she was wanting something for long term use, something that will be pictured for years and will need to be sturdy and beautiful. NO PRESSURE, right?!?! *wipe the sweat from my brow* I took her request of appliques a step further, creating colorful three dimensional pieces adding class and pop that will wow her family and guests for years.

These are just a sampling, she ordered eight. Just think how gorgeous her party is going to be! But wait, there’s a banner.

My camera batteries absolutely refused to squeeze out another photo, so the “birthday” of  “happy birthday” didn’t get taken, lol.

This type of crown and banner would work well with any type of party – baby shower, weddings, birthdays, heck even just for happy hour! Convo me to discuss your needs! Please be aware, custom orders require time, so please order well in advance of your event! Custom design or rush order charges may apply.

Butterflies and Rainbows!

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!
