So the Wonder Woman crown and cuffs are done.
I’m pretty sure Linda Carter would be impressed.
They were quite simple to make so I thought I’d show you.
First, draw the crown shape you desire on a folded piece of paper.
Once you are happy with the shape, cut it out and you have the front shape of the crown.
Measure your child’s head and figure out how much more paper you need to add to the sides. It’s important that you leave about 2-3 inches in the back free (you will be putting elastic back there eventually).
Cut out 2 crown shapes – one a little bit larger than the other.
Find an old red t-shirt and cut out one star from the fabric.
Sew the red star onto the crown that you would like to be in the front.
Sew the crowns together inside out first. Remember to leave a little opening to pull your fabric through.
Pull the fabric through so that the outside fabric is now on the outside.
Place a little bit of stuffing into the crown.
Sew on a large piece of elastic on the back of the crown.
(In the picture you can see that I used 2 smaller elastic pieces. If I make another crown like this I will use thicker elastic – less things for little hands to pull on).
Connect the 2 sides of the crown by hand sewing the elastic to the second side.
Have your very own Wonder Woman model the final product.
(I forgot to take a picture of the cuffs but trust me when I say there is lots of posing going on when they are worn).
Caroline loved her crown so much she insisted on putting it in her bed the first night.
Now onto finding some Wonder Woman boots – in a teeny tiny size.
