lexi's birthday crown

a while ago i received some very cool 'green tea' wool from the fabulous erin in a themed yarn swap, and i thought it was perfect for a sylvan styled felted crown for lexi's birthday!

the pattern was for 10ply so i adapted it to 8ply & after an age it was finally knitted...

i machine felted it, then needle felted a basic vine design onto it-

i started at one end with spring / new buds kinda thing...
then summer / full flower..
then autumn / setting seeds
and finished it off with some wooden buttons & ribbons

lexi seems pretty happy with it!
