A bandana is a great way to dress up your dog without being too frilly.  Or you can make it extra-frilly if you want.  The more doo-dads you add, the harder it will be to wash.  I like to make these with two different colors or patterns so you get two bandanas for the work and cost of one.  This pattern lies flat, which looks better on smooth-coated dogs than the tied “cowboy style” bandana.

Cost:  $0 to $10 depending on how many of the supplies you already have and what you need to buy.  Mine usually run $2-$5.   Fabric can be free leftovers from another project or the most expensive embroidered silk – your choice.

1. Gather supplies:  paper for pattern – I use newspaper
Thread
Fabric ~ half a yard
Velcro – 1 to 2 inches
Pins
Sewing machine (or hand needle and lots of time)
Scissors
Pen or chopstick for turning corners right-side-out

Optional:  Fringe, beads, lace, sequins, sew-on badges, etc.
Iron for flattening seams
Supervisor cat

2. Cut out and test-fit pattern on dog.  Adjust as necessary.

LOL! I have a sewing machine and it turns out faster if I hand sew it :/
