I love my dog bandanas! My owner and a I walk every day and people always make comments about my holiday and seasonal bandanas! Here is how to make a dog bandana for your furry friend.
All you need is a little bit of fabric and maybe 30 minutes to whip up a custom bandana for your dog.

What do I need to make a dog bandana?
Fabric, thread, sewing machine, iron and pressing station. That’s it! If you sew, you probably have everything you need at home. The amount of fabric depends on the size of your dog. Measure your dogs neck, add at least 8-inches and that is the diagonal width of the bandana. This gives you enough length to be able to tie it with some ease around your dogs neck.
How can I make a no-sew bandana?
Follow the directions above but only use one fabric. Use pinking shears to cut out the triangle. Tie the no-sew scarf on your dog with the right side of the fabric out. You might see the wrong side of the fabric, but your furry friend will still look adorable!
