How to Make a Dog Bandana

We took our Yorkie to the groomers a few weeks ago and we were thrilled with how he smelled and looked. My boys were worried the groomer would send him home with a bow. But instead, he came home with an adorable bandana. We were thrilled with how cute he looked. I decided to see if I could make one. It was so easy to make that I wanted to share how to make a dog bandana. I think I’ll make a few more to let our dog celebrate the different holidays.

Making a dog bandana is such a simple process. If you can use a pair of scissors, sew a straight line and follow a few simple steps, you may have a great idea for some of the dog lovers on your Christmas list next year.

Pick your fabric.

I had a stack of fabric that I had saved from one of my husband’s shirts. I decided to practice using that. I measured out 2 six inch squares of the same material. I could easily see using seasonal patterns to make a bandana for different holidays.

Dog Bandana
Measure a 6 inch square. Then fold it over to make a loop for the leash.

If you have a larger dog, you would want to make the bandana larger.

Sew a square

With right sides together, sew 3 sides and part of the 4th side of the squares together, leaving an opening to flip it right side out.

Fold over the unsewn edge to give it a smooth seem and sew it down. This is the way you make the tube for the leash.

That’s all there is to it! You can iron it crisp and put it on your dog. As easy as this is, I’m thinking he needs a 4th of July, Summer Fun, Fall, Thanksgiving, and Christmas bandana too. Maybe we’ll even make a few for Christmas presents? The kids could get in on the fun and plan some surprises for the dogs in our family!

Have you ever made a bandana for your dog? I’d love to see them if you make one!

    I made 2 bandanas with a different pattern for my 4 month puppy and it was complicated, so I will be trying your method, much simpler to make. Thanks for sharing. ?
