Hi, this is Jessica from Cutesy Crafts, here to show you how I made this super easy bandana skirt for my daughter’s 4th of July outfit. I’m seriously loving the bandana trend for 4th of July! Bandanas are already hemmed which make them perfect for skirt-making. And, if I can add lace to anything, I will. I love the frilly, feminine touch that it adds to the skirt!
- a bandana
- 1/2-inch wide elastic (1 inch longer than the child’s waist measurement)
- 1 1/2 yards eyelet lace trim
- matching thread
- safety pin (for threading elastic)
Let’s get started!
Fold your bandana in half and cut along the fold to get two equal pieces.
Turn it right-side-out, and you’re done! To complete the outfit, I appliqued a star, cut out of blue bandana fabric, onto a white shirt. Just iron some Wonder Under or thin interfacing onto the back of the bandana, cut out the star, iron it to the shirt, and sew around it. Standard applique process. So cute, right?!
