I LOVE the 4th of July!
I love my country.
But I do not love spending $15 on a patriotic t-shirt my child will wear one day.
Here's my solution:
Make a patriotic pinwheel!
Fold & cut the diagonals of the square, leaving 1/4" uncut at the center.
Use a pin to help keep in place.
I used minimal stitching through the buttonholes, so as not to ruin the integrity of the shirt.
That way, on July 5th, I will simply snip the thread, take off the pinwheel, and have my daughter's fave white shirt back....unscathed:)
Go ahead and save the pinwheel for next year's festive shirt!
