Ahoy matey!  Welcome to the fourth and final day of the DIY Halloween Costume series!  Today I have to present to you my favorite little pirate.  Not only is he wearing a super cute pirate costume from Pottery Barn Kids, he is also donning a homemade pirate eye patch made by yours truly.  Let's get to the DIY so you can make one of your own for your pirate or piratess.  (piratess = girl pirate)

Is there a sweet little butterfly/fairy/princess in your life that needs an adorable headband for Halloween?  Keep reading for the easy tutorial (and free printable!) to find out how to get all of this cuteness for yourself!
