I made this dog bandanna today for my grand-dog, Molly.
To make you'll need:
- Square fabric for bandanna
- 1 sheet of Square 1 Iron-on
Making the Bandanna:
Cut one square fabric piece to fit your pet. Here's a general guide for sizing:
- Small = 14" square
- Medium = 18" square
- Large = 22" square
- Extra Large = 26" square
Molly is a black Labrador and I cut my fabric at 24" square. If it's too big, they can roll the top down to fit her neck.
Fold fabric right sides together on the diagonal, making a triangle. Sew the two open sides together leaving a space for turning.
Turn right side out and press.
Top stitch on the same two sewn sides, closing the open turn space in the process.
Note: do not sew or top stitch along the top where the fold is. This part of the bandanna is the selvage and needs to be able to have some give and stretch to make it comfortable on your pet.
Adding Bone and Name to Bandanna:
Find a bone image (there are many in the Silhouette Store available). Color fill as desired (I used brown). Add pet's name and fill text in white. I used Impact font for mine.
Add an offset of 0.08 to bone and use this as your cut line.
Print and cut image on a sheet of Square1 Iron-On. Heat press image to front of bandanna at 380 degrees for 20 seconds.
