Impromptu costume with a trashion twist

Its Friday night and your friends call you up to say they are having a party, a costume party that starts in a couple of hours, with no time or money to spare what do you do? Go to your craft stash grab some scrap fabric and scissors then follow this tutorial for a simple yet awesome teenage mutant ninja turtle costume - you'll be shouting cowabunga in no time.

Recommended fabric: any thin fabric, preferably in red, blue, orange, or purple, minimum size 30 inches by 7 inches, but longer is better. I used an old bandanna/handkerchief I had lying around and the size was just right.

Step one: Fold in Half

Step two: Cut off a long strip an inch and a half from the fold. (will be about 3 inches wide when unfolded)

Step three: Cut the eye holes from near the center of the strip before unfolding.

Step four: You should now have two pieces that are together but not connected. Keep them together and cut two one inch strips the length of the fabric (for a total of four)

Step five: For the best look wear a green shirt and khaki pants, tie the wide strip around your head and the thin strips around your wrists and elbows.

Cowabunga !!!
