Punky likes to wear things on her head. Her accessories include a sunhat, bunny ears, paper party hats, a kitchen towel, and a pair of polka dot pajama shorts. I told her I'd make her a scarf to wear on her head that had elastic in it, like a headband. Naturally, she was thrilled and immediately chose a fabric from my stash.
There are a lot of tutorials to be found for this easy sewing project. I used this one.
Check out how crisp the fabric looks when you do the all-important step of ironing every time you make a fold. I usually skip this, but it does make a difference.
Punky was so happy to wear this, and she can almost get it on by herself. When we went out to run errands later, a few people complimented her on it, and couldn't believe it was homemade. I think I will make a few more.
