Is your puppy full of personality and charm? Have you ever thought of making a doggie bandana for your pet?
For young yet seasoned crafters and for owners with lots of love for their best furry friends, a doggie bandana is a great craft idea. Your family and friends will appreciate this handmade accessory and your pup will look stylish.
If you always wanted to know how to make a dog bandana, then your answer is right here. Let’s take a look now!
Step One: Choose Your Fabric
I suggest you use a 100% cotton fabric for your dog bandana. A cotton blend will work too, but I find that the cotton fabric is less likely to cause your dog to have a reaction. You can find cotton fabric at your local fabric store or online.
If you want to get fancy, you can use two different fabrics for the front and back of the bandana, or even add a third layer of fabric in the middle to make the bandana more durable and less likely to rip.
Step Two: Cut the Fabric
Cut the fabric using scissors or a rotary cutter. The bandana should be large enough to tie around your dog’s neck and be double-sided so that you can add different patterns or colors to each side.
If you’re using a pattern, cut it out of the fabric before you start cutting the bandana shape. Fold the fabric in half, right sides together, and pin it in place. Then, cut a triangle out of the fabric.
The base of the triangle should be the width of the fabric and the height should be twice the width. When you open up the triangle, you should have a bandana shape.
Step Three: Hem the Fabric
Use a sewing machine or a needle and thread to sew a straight stitch around the edge of the fabric. Be sure to backstitch at the beginning and end of your seam to reinforce it.
Step Four: Attach the Bandana to Your Dog
To attach the bandana to your dog, first tie the bandana around your dog’s neck, making sure it’s not too tight. Then, tie the excess fabric in a knot at the top of your dog’s head. If you’re using a patterned bandana, make sure the pattern is facing outwards.
And that’s how to make a dog bandana! Since Christmas is just around the corner, you may also create a dog Christmas bandana for your furry friend.
