DIY bandana skirts...


these are perfect for the '4th of july'.
i saw this tutorial on pinterest and i just had to try it out.
 let me just say how easy it was and inexpensive.  overall cost was  $2.50 per skirt! 
  i found the bandanas at walmart and just grabbed some extra fabric for the bottom
 of the skirts while i was there too. 


*first iron the bandanas and cut in half with some fabric scissors.



*next i cut the 2 strips of the other material {checked material}
 the length of the bandana at 4 inches width
 {you could cut it wider if you want the skirt to be longer}

*place raw edge towards the bottom of the skirt with the "right side" of fabric facing up

*sew your strips onto the bottoms of the bandana then press with an iron.

*right sides together, line up your seams where the bandana and the bottom strip come together, sew together both halves to create a tube.



* next sew as close as you can to the bottom open edge of your casing 
{this will help to slide your elastic a lot easier}


and Voila!
look how adorable they turned out!!
