something to have a chuckle about


At my water Zumba class we were challenged to wear or make a shower cap
I could not get out to buy one so in haste I put this together just before class
Sewed a circle with hat elastic.
added and extra ruffle and stitched it on
Made the crazy flower and stitched it on, 2 bells added for center,   so I jingled as I danced.
Friend gave me the piece of fabric.
Getting wet did not hurt it at all.

want to make the flower?
coming next!
shower cap fancy

This one is pastel
