Birthday Bunting Skirt {Tutorial}

We are gearing up for a certain little blonde headed girl's 4th birthday this weekend so I've got birthday party on the brain. I made her a ruffled pillowcase dress and matching capris yesterday and intended for her to have it for her birthday and for some pictures I was taking of her. Then, today I came across this picture and I had a vision. I love buntings {pennants, flags, what-have-you} and would have them all over the house if I wasn't trying to purge and deep clean right now. So, I figured, 'Why not wear one?!' Well, not me. But my little birthday girl! Actually, you can wear one I made for big girls - you can find it here in my shop, but this tutorial is for the little girl in your life. The link above shows you how to make one using that shop's supplies, but this tutorial shows you how to make one with the pillowcase you have leftover after making the pillowcase dress. Or just use a new pillowcase. The hemming is already done for you, and the side seams. All you have to do is sew a waist seam, thread elastic through and sew on your bunting! It doesn't get any easier than this, Folks!

I'm linking with these parties!
