Every pup needs a cute bandana. Or a few cute bandanas.
As a young girl, I had an interest in sewing, embroidering and crocheting – only because my grandma was always doing one of the three. She would often let me mess around with the sewing machine, try a few stitches on her crochet project or embroider a few towels. It was always fun while it lasted, but I never ‘mastered’ any of them.
Fast forward to present day. Bryn’s mom love to sew. She makes beautiful quilts.
She made this one for our wedding gift.
She even included a tag, isn’t it just lovely?
Well, she was truly my inspiration to start sewing again.
I set my standards high and thought I’d try a quilt. Someday it will get used. And someday I will write a post about it. Today, bandanas. Dog bandanas.
Before the ‘Gotcha Day’ of our two boys, I knew I wanted them to have bandanas. I didn’t think I would have time to make some, so I searched on Etsy.
Thanks to Hounds and Honeys, I had two beautiful bandanas in just a few days. Talk about great customer service!
Not long after receiving these in the mail, I just so happened to be in JoAnn fabrics – and a SALE was happening. Yes, a fabric sale. Of course I bought some fabric.
Thanks to the inspiration from Hounds and Honeys, I decided to dust off my sewing machine and make one myself.
I started by cutting out the desired size and folding it in half. I then used pins to keep the fabric in place while I sewed around the edges.
I left one little section open so I could turn it inside out and finish the bandana. I then closed up the small open section and gave it a cool looking stitch all the way around.
