Making the appliques:

Each appliqué has 2 layers. All stitches used on appliqués are hand blanket stitch, with embroidery threads, as you can see here:

Cut the applique patterns you want to use (you'll need to choose: a number according to the age you are celebrating, and 4 more appliques from the shapes) . Cut the applique patterns you chose twice of felt fabric.

  

Back layer of the applique – take the back layer piece; place it on a surface, right side up. Take a piece of Velcro - match the size and the shape of the Velcro to the size and shape of the appliqué. Place one layer of the Velcro in the center of the applique's back layer; sew around the Velcro (i sew it by hand, you can sew it with the sewing machine). Here is how it looks (after i made the blanket stitch - i forgot to take a picture before ...)

 

The front layer of the applique – take the front layer piece. ; place it on a surface, right side up. Sew on it the shapes you want (with hand blanket stitch and embroidery thread).

Making the strap:

Take one piece of 2.6"x18" fabric. Place it right side up.  Place your appliqués on it. Mark on the fabric the center of each appliqué.

Sew on each mark a piece of Velcro with zigzag stitch (the matching piece of Velcro you sew on the applique).

Take the two fabric pieces. Lay them right sides together. Pin it.

 

Sew the two long edges. Stop sewing 3⁄8" from each end. Turn the tube inside out. Press it. Topstitch the two long edges. Stop sewing 3⁄8" from each end.

Insert elastic: Fold the edge of the tube towards the inside of the tube. Take the elastic. Push it into the bottom end.

      

Sew it into place.

Do the same with the other side of the tube (according to your child's head Circumference).

 

Attach the appliqués to the crown, using the Velcro.
