Crochet Flower Girl Crown
Crochet Flower Girl Crown is for my little doll who will be turning 3 years old in a week. I've gone out and got her some new clothes and a baby alive doll. She is the most caring little girl, she takes such good care of her dolls like they are real children, except when she throws them out of her bed in the middle of the night. haha
I wanted to make something crocheted for her and have of course left it down to the last minute to do so. The idea came to me last night when I was picking out colours of yarn to use for my next video tutorial. I was picking out colours to film my Crochet Flower Bud Headband pattern when I got the idea that I could implement the headband into a Crochet Flower Girl Crown.
