Well, I thought it would be fun to make her a headband with a matching flower from the dress.
The flower on her dress was made with my sewing machine and a little needle and thread action, but this is something that can easily be made with some fabric glue and a glue gun (I know, the dreaded glue gun . . . damn you glue gun and your quick drying ways!!).

It’s pretty simple to do. Start with a piece of fabric that is two to three inches wide and twelve to fifteen inches long. {This is a perfect way to use up some scraps from the Lazy Days Skirt!}   Now add a strip of fabric glue much in the same way you would sew, leaving a one and a half inch opening so you can flip it inside out.

Fold the fabric over on itself, and let the glue dry completely. It is important that you don’t use your glue gun for this first step. Sure, it dries really quickly, but it is totally inflexible once dry. Use the Tacky Glue, and let it dry completely.
Once the glue is completely dry, flip the whole thing inside out through the gap that you left (pictured in the step by step picture above).
Now, starting at one end of the strip of fabric, tuck the fabric behind itself and secure with your glue gun. Here’s where the glue gun and it’s quick drying ways come in handy.

There is no exact science here, just keep tucking fabric behind and securing with glue, so that you begin to form your flower and the general shape is a circle.
Note:  You can absolutely do this part with a needle and thread. Just secure the whole flower with pins (instead of glue) and then sew the folds in place.

When you are done, add a button to the middle with hot glue, and then add your flower to a clip or a headband.

Now strip your toddler out of her very very sandy swimsuit and throw her into that Fourth of July dress and bribe her with a piece of fudge to take some pictures.
