|Even petting a real horse don't worry Mom and Dad, its an Amish horse!|
|This horse might look tamer but it is NOT Amish!|
|This is the backside with a white T-shirt and I just tied a bandanna around his neck.|
|Bandannas I got these are Walmart for a 1.00 each|
|layout the bandanna after washing|
|Fold it into a triangle just flip one side over|
|Fold one side down matching up the points|
|I folded the last corner to the back side,|
it is also the corner that says made in China
First fold the tip top of the folded bandanna as seen above. I turned it over about an inch and a half and sewed it onto one side of the waist band. Sew the waist band with the right or front side facing the bandannas. You are going to sew all of them.
The nest step is to close the waist band fold the back side of the waist band to the back and line it up pin it together and sew through the bandannas to attach the back side. Once you do this run your elastic through the waist band this establishes the waits band I used a wide piece of elastic.
Last step I sewed the bandannas together you can do this by hand if you like or on the machine. You just don't want the bandannas separating when your child is wearing the skirt. I only sewed about half way. This isn't a perfect science as some of the bandannas are going to be shorter or a bit longer just sew it however far you feel you need too. I sewed about an inch and a half to two inches. You want to make sure and only sew the edges together and allow the skirt to flow naturally. I basically sewed from the waist down to the first point and allowed the rest to hang down.

|Ok Mom enough already!|
I only tried it on for my best friend Emma!
Who knows what Mom will come up with next!
