Since I can't sew right now, here is a quick scrap project that will also protect your skin from the sun!
Let's make a pretty sun hat! First, check out your local shops for an inexpensive sunhat. I found this one for about $5 at Walmart.
It's pretty, plain and has sparkles! Next, get a bunch of your scraps. For the flower on the hat use the tutorial here. Then cut three strips 1 1/2 inches wide by width of fabric. The length needed will depend on if you do a tight or loose braid. I used about 26 inches to do mine, its tighter but not super tight.
Sew the strips at the top, making sure they all face the same direction.
Then fold the strips to make tubes with the pretty side of the fabric facing out and start braiding. This is so the design on the fabric shows! I tape the top down to the table to keep it steady while I braid.
I place the flower over the raw spot to cover and presto! Now my sunhat went from plain to pretty!
Sew sweet and sew easy! Don't forget to protect your skin from the sun!
