Super Quick Pirate Eye Patch Tutorial

Did you know today is International Talk Like a Pirate Day?  Neither did I… until, through the wonders of Facebook, I was made aware of this holiday.  So what does a holiday like this require?  A super quick eye patch, of course!

When I realized it was International Talk Like a Pirate Day, I dug out some elastic and some felt.  They don’t match, but that doesn’t bother my boys at all [even though my need-to-match-self may have wanted to run out and buy some black felt….]

Cut the elastic to comfortably fit around your child’s head.  I had some softer [read: won’t dig in to their skull] elastic that I snagged from a Pick Your Plum daily deal, so I used that.

Cut your felt in the shape of an eye patch.

Zig zag the felt onto the elastic.

Zig zag the ends of the elastic together.

Teach your three-year-old to say “Arrr, matey” while he eats his lunch.

Play peek-a-boo with your snot covered one-year-old, because really, what fun would an eye patch be if you didn’t do that?

Now, I’m off to do some plundering and…. whatever else is is that pirates might do. ;)
