This bit of a belated post, but I realized I never shared the handmades Blake received for his birthday! After making a crown for MaKenna last year, all the boys requested one as well. Blake chose his own colors, purple being his favorite. Of course, I also had to needlefelt two of his favorite things-a football and a sea turtle. The sea turtle was a bit of a challenge as he chose green felt for the sides, but I think I managed it okay.
Jacob had decided that he wanted to make Blake a plaque so he sketched out the design and Daddy woodburned it onto a piece of wood. It came out great!
