Handstitched children’s crown

The owner of the the Etsy shop Mette, Kristin Rasmussen, sent Leta this gorgeous crown, and I was so impressed with the quality of the craftsmanship that I had to post it here. You’d never find anything this cute and so well made in a big chain store. I love that it’s not affiliated with any specific Disney princess, and so when she plays with it she pretends she’s a make believe queen who presides over “all the land and all the castles.” Although, she did once ask me if I could get her one of these with Cinderella’s face on the front.
