Doggone Stylish Bandannas

Give Spot some extra style this summer with these fun DIY bandannas that slide right over his collar.


  1. The bandanna size depends on your dog’s neck and collar size. For example, if your dog’s neck measures 12 inches, cut a 12- by 12-inch square
  2. With the wrong side of the fabric facing you, turn two opposite corners 2½ inches, with the pointed end of the corner facing the center. Then press with your iron.
  3. Fold the square with the right sides together, matching the two unfolded corners, and pin in place.
  4. Starting just below a folded edge, sew one side of the bandanna using a ¼-inch seam. Repeat on the other side.
  5. Turn the bandanna right side out, using one of the openings. Use a pencil or chopstick to flatten out the side seams and the bottom, then press with your iron.
  6. For the pocket the collar will go through: Lay your dog’s collar over the top of the bandanna where the openings are. Include the clasps, so the whole collar can slide through. Use a water soluble-pen to draw a line just under the collar — this will give you a guide to sew a straight line for the pocket. Sew across the marked line, then use a damp cloth to remove the mark.
  7. Slide the collar through the bandanna, and you’re done!
