I went to Crufts this year and was amazed at all the beautiful handmade items you could buy there – I bought my pug Percy a rather dashing tartan collar, lead and bow-tie set! It inspired me to whip up a little bandana with Easter themed fabric to wear when we go round my Dad’s for Sunday lunch tomorrow.
Step 1: Cut out 2 pieces of fabric. Play around with the sizes depending on what type of dog you have – Percy is still a puppy so the whole bandana is about 4 inches wide and 7 inches long (before folding over – this will make sense when you read through the rest of the tutorial).
Step 2: Place fabric pieces on top of each other, right sides facing.
Step 3: Sew around the bandana leaving a 1 inch gap.
Step 4: This one inch gap is what you will pull the bandana through to turn it right side out.
Step 5: Once you’ve turned the bandana right side out, fold the fabric into the bandana to and press. Sew the gap closed.
Step 6: Fold the top of the bandana over about 1-2 inches (depending on the width of your pet’s collar).
Step 7: Stitch the fold down across the bandana.
See – so simple and so cute!! Here is Percy ready for Easter 🙂
Happy crafting 🙂
