My daughter’s name is Soleil, which is French for sun, so I decided to make her a Baby Sunflower costume for Halloween.

I started by making a brown stretchy tank top and sewing sequins onto it to resemble sunflower seeds. Next, I made satin petals and leaves and sewed them onto the tank top to create a sunflower dress. I made her a bonnet and sewed more yellow petals onto it. I had plans to paint her face, but she wouldn’t let me. I think it still turned out really cute.
