I loved making this cape for our niece who loves to dress up. After stitching around the edges, I made a casing at the top of the cape and pushed cording through it. I made a crown out of felt and used my sewing machine to stitch along the edges. To complete the project, I used iron-on rhinestones to write the letter A on top of the felt crown.
The wand idea came from a craft book I borrowed from the library...but I changed it quite a bit to accomodate for the materials that I found. At Hobby Lobby, I found the wooden star already on a dowel, ready to decorate. I first painted the edges of the star purple and the dowel white. When the paint was dry, I used a sparkly varnish on the dowel. I glued white and purple ribbon and a silver bead cord to both sides of the star. I then glued sparkly purple felt to both sides of the star. I used the silver bead cord to glue along the edges of the star and to spell the letter A for her name.
This princess circlet was also an idea from the same book I borrowed from the library. I used white ribbon to wind around the metal hoop. Then I glued on ribbon flowers and tied organza ribbon to the back.
I found a cute bag with a monkey princess on it and used it to put all these accessories in. I also made a little jewelry bag to put play jewelry in. Annalina loved her gift--can't wait to see it on her some day.:)
