prince jasper

willow keeps putting this little purple cape on the jasper, and as a result he's come to be known around these parts as "prince jasper". And every prince needs a crown, right? I've had this particular little project in mind for quite a while now, after admiring ella's beautiful ones for so long. I would love to have bought one of hers, but what with the current exchange rate, the fact that I need three of them, and that pesky little voice inside my head that says "but I could make that", I decided to do the sensible thing. That being staying up till 11pm stitching.
must say, I'm liking this one very much. Now I'm thinking about colours for willow, who likes "rainbow", and trying to convince fin that he needs one too.
p.s. in case you're wondering what the marks are all over jasper's face, they would be self-inflicted scratches. Oh, and just to be clear, if you want to see some truly amazing, beautifully stitched crowns, go and have a look at ella's. I have a long way to go in the art of stitching felt, it's tricky stuff.
p.p.s. just remembered, I added some pants to the shop today. Not many, just some.

great crown. i think it's better cause you made it yourself. julian is a bit of a rainbow boy himself. he wants a quilt in all colours except pink - definately no pink! ahhh they grow up too quickly.
