Here is the template to make this little butterfly. There are enough shapes on the page to make three butterflies but you can of course print off as many as you need. There are some basic instructions here too to help you get started. For more tips on how to make this, check out my little video which shows some of the steps. You can view it here.
Here are the templates for an even smaller version of this butterfly. This uses half inch jewel shapes and a three quarter inch diamond. I find that spraying my pieces with spray starch whilst pressing, before removing the papers, helps enormously when making these as it keeps the seam allowances crisp.
Here are some free hexagon templates in a variety of different sizes. All you need to do is choose a size, print it out, cut them out, then you are ready to begin creating your hexagon flowers or whatever you want! You can get creative!
This lovely birthday crown can be made in any colour scheme to suit girls or boys. It is made from felt, which is so easy to use as it doesn't fray, you can just cut and sew! The special thing about this crown is that the number is attached with Velcro so it can be changed for the following birthday. Be sure to add an extra candle to the cake each year too. The crown is fitted with elastic at the back, meaning it will grow with your child and be something they enjoy wearing each birthday.
