This one is for our toddler’s first Hawaiian dance performed for school recognition. Doting aunt bought a ready-made orange Hawaiian grass skirt for her. It was okay but I felt it was not what I wanted for her. Our toddler is bigger than most of her age and so during our fitting session, I knew the skirt was not hers. The straws were widely spaced and her undergarment could be seen underneath. I asked the more experienced moms in school if we can possibly do it ourselves and most agreed. So, I did watch videos from the net, although there’s only a handful really worth watching and reading, it gave me an idea on how to go about it.
Twine or plastic straw (choose the color you want)
Elastic band or garter

Here's my labor of love:
