Is it a sun? Or is it a fried egg? Does it even matter as long as it is brightening up the day?

Of course it doesn't, especially as so far this summer (I use the term loosely) sunshine seems to be in short supply. If the sun does come out though, we're ready, because what could be more sunny than a sunhat? 

The sunhat in question is reversible bucket hat, yellow cotton on one side and white cotton on the other. I made it using the free pattern from Oliver & S. I used the largest size which is a perfect fit for my youngest who has a large head. I've made a few of these over the years as they are perfect for sun protection and easy packing.

Next up some blue cotton/linen bubble shorts which come from my favourite Japanese sewing book so far, which is conveniently named 'A Sunny Spot: Everyday Clothes for Girls'. I have made (and loved) so many of the patterns in this book, including three pairs of these bubble shorts so far. They are really practical and get so much use as they work just as well in the cooler months over tights. 

And finally the boxy sunshine/egg yolk tee. The pattern is self-drafted to create a boxy shape with slightly curved, dipped hem and cuffed sleeves. I used plain white cotton interlock with some white ribbing for the neckband. Details on adding the motif are below.

This project was inspired by Celina's Sunny Side Up Pinterest board. Linda will be back sharing some beautiful printables on the same theme tomorrow.
