My youngest child loves to wear things on her head. This includes but is not limited to: sand buckets, bowls, the kind of stuffed animal that has Velcro hands that cling, colanders, boxes – you get the idea. One day she took my electric guitar cord (which was wound into a circle and secured with a gripper) and plopped that upon her noggin. My first reaction was “Take that thing off of your head”, but I held my tongue just long enough to see how nicely the wrapped rings of the cord draped around in descending circles and the seed of an idea that has become ‘How Precious’ was planted. Then I said, “Please, don’t put that on your head Sunshine Girl”. Honest, I did.
Note: To keep ‘How Precious’ looking like a cloche when worn, you want the child’s head measurement to be equal to or less than the circumference of the hat.
