Sew birthday fabric crowns!
I made this dress-up crown as part of a birthday gift for a very sweet three-year-old girl. I’m also going to make her one of these capes to go with it. With Halloween coming up, I thought a quick how-to for the crown might be useful. It’s reversible too. This fits both of my young kids, but you might want to measure to be sure.

Cut fabric and interfacing according to template (be sure to add the extra 2? which will form the tab). Iron the interfacing onto one piece of your fabric. If you are using very lightweight fabrics, you might want to use interfacing on both fabric pieces.
Using a zig-zag stitch, sew one side of 3? velcro to the right tab of the front of one crown piece. Leave about 1/2? from all edges for the seam allowance. Repeat with the other piece of velcro, also sewing the velcro onto the right tab of the front of the fabric.
With right sides together, sew around the sides and peaks of the crown.
Turn right sides out and press the peaks of the crown as you pull the fabric to make neat corners. Press under the bottom seam by 1/4? and sew in place. I used a decorative stitch.
