The minion and I celebrated the summer solstice by picking some blueberries. It was the first time the minion had eaten blueberries. Tonight we are going to a celebration at our Unitarian Universalist church and the invitation said “seasonally appropriate clothing” so I decided to make her a sun headband.
I started out with three concentric circles of t-shirt fabric then I cut the rays of the sun in each circle.
Then I hand stitched them together with three french knots in the center and stitched them onto a strip of regular cotton fabric. Then I added two ties on either end of the strip of fabric. The ties are strips of t-shirt material that I stretched so they curled up. The idea is that you tie the red ties and thus it is fairly adjustable.
I did iron it, but I like the way the rays curl up, it kind of reminds me of solar flares. Happy Midsummer!
