Intro: Sewing for Men: Beginner's Project-Dog Bandana
Not sure many men will be interested in sewing, but you never know. I got interested in sewing about a year ago after telling myself for many years that it would be a very useful and creative tool. I was right! Like all endeavors, beginning to sew can be challenging and even daunting, but I have learned alot, and am actually getting better. And there are so many projects one can do if so inclined. For this first project, I show how to make a bandana for your dog. Yea, I know, kind of silly, but the dog doesn't seem to mind too much!
Step 1: Cut Out Bandana
This little project requires one piece of material, 17in. x 6.5in. Make a little larger so that you can sew a hem all around. Cut material in a triangle shape as shown.
Step 2: Sew Hems and Ties
Fold material over itself to have a hem that is a quarter to one half inch in width. Sew all around on machine. Add ties and sew them on as well.
Step 3: Finished Project
This instructable is more about the project itself rather than a primer on sewing. There are many, many resources for learning to sew on instructables and the internet. It is a very useful and fun skill to have.

What a dog! (Nice bandana, too.)
