...and they called it, "Puppy Luv."
(Thank you Gyspy for modeling Your Puppy Luv Bandanna for Us!)
First let's cut the fabric:
For small dogs cut a 14" square of fabric. Medium dogs need about a 22" square of fabric. Large dogs need about a 22" square of fabric, and for extra large dogs cut a 26" square.

Step 2: Adding Your Fabric Decorations to the Pup's Scarf.
There are two methods you can use to add the fabric decorations, Zigzag appliqué, or heat bond can be used to put your art work on.
Before you attach the decorations make sure they are on the pretty side of 1/2 of the fabric square when it is shaped diagonally. Also make sure you only sew through ONE layer of fabric and not two.
Zigzag appliqué is stronger and will last longer than a heat bond, and that is what I suggest. Once the decorations are cut out, pin them in place and using a tight zig-zag stitch, sew very close around the outer edge of the decorations.
If you would like to use heatbond, follow the manufacturers directions.
Stitch along the two sides where the raw edges are. Leave a 3" or 4" opening for turning.
Step 5: Finished:
If you do not want to tie it around your dogs neck then add Velcro to both tie end areas.
