Fun Doggy Bandanas Great for Gifts

This is such a simple and fun thing to make! These doggy bandanas make awesome gifts for ANY dog lover!

If you don’t like to sew, I have an ETSY store and you can just purchase them. Free shipping too.

BUT, if you like to sew well here ya go!

First pick your favorite fabric. I love Fabric.com Measure an even square for your size pup. I do mostly 14″ to 16″ as my dog is a medium size pup. It really doesn’t matter if it comes out smaller as you make this bandana for the collar to go through. Easy off for washing or switching to another fun bandana. 

Measure out the size and cut your square


Perfect square evenly measuring all the way around. (I did 18″ here for a BIG dog)

Measured here 18″

Fold corners right sides in and sew 2″ both sides. Do the same to opposite corner.

Sew a 1/4″ seam on your corners. Right SIDE should face up. I sewed and back stitched a couple of times on both ends because of how many times a collar could be put in and out of this area. Allowing extra support.

Put right sides together and pin forming your triangle


Sew 1/4″ seam around your triangle making sure right sides together, and you start and stop at your sewn corners. Leave the openings and reverse your bandana when done.

Reverse and lay out your bandana and iron.

 

Draw a chalked line from corner to corner for you to sew on.


Once you sew on your line you can wipe off mark with water. This will be the hole for the collar to go through.

This one is the bigger one, 16″

This one is 14″ fits better just showing in the front without the bandana going all the way around.


Enjoy making these! They are super fun to sew, give as gifts, and to inter change for seasons or occasions!

Love deeper, talk sweeter,
