Say you’re a ten year old girl. And say people keep taking your hat. But you don’t WANT people to take your hat. So you must develop a hat-keeping strategy.
A possible strategy is to keep a head louse on your hat. Other children are aware of head lice and would rather not be exposed to them, not even an image of a head louse. Since it is hard to find a commercially available head louse, you may have to ask someone to embroider you one. And since you have acted as a turtle sitter for the embroiderer, you will feel free to request an embroidered head louse button.
The project took about 15 minutes. It used a tiny scrap of linen. The button forms are Dritz craft cover buttons. The button was sealed with a thin layer of white glue after the embroidery was installed.
Hope you like your louse, Liz.
