A finished object! Yes indeedy. And on the child it was intended for - look at that little munchkin, is he not adorable?
This crown was inspired by SouleMama, but instead of using ready made felt, I knit up a little crown shape and felted it. Unfortunately, I had originally chosen royal blue and bright gold in Blue Sky Alpaca sport weight, to match the sequinned patches on a fabulous bright red thrifted evening sweater, but as you can see I had to revise my color scheme after the felting. I crocheted a little granny square in some leftover chenille and ribboon, and then sewed on gold buttons from the sweater instead.
Then I went again to my little leftover bits pile and found some pistachio-colored Jamieson's and attempted to embroider the bubela's name. Hmm. I think I could use some embroidery lessons, eh?
But overall I am pleased.
Happy First Birthday Buddy!
