Birthday crown & onesie applique

Sweet little Sadie girl will be a year old in 2 months.  Where has the time gone?

To help her celebrate her birthday in style, I made her a birthday crown and added an applique to a onesie.

Want to try your hand at applique?  Here's my tutorial for creating a monkey applique
Want to make a birthday crown?  Check out the tutorials from Sew She Sews and Skip To My Lou.
Really want to try one of these projects but don't have a sewing machine?  No problem.  You could actually make both projects without one!  For the applique, you can do all the steps except for machine sewing.  You could even hand stitch around the applique if you're feeling ambitious.  And for the crown, you could make the felt wrap around the whole head and use sticky backed velcro for the attachment (instead of using elastic).  To keep the layers of felt together, you could use craft glue instead of sewing them.
