Try your hand at this awesome little reversible dog bandana pattern! This printable pattern will walk you through how to make your own dog bandanas.
It’s day 150, I think. It might be Monday. The laundry is multiplying, my messy bun has become sentient.
Around day 80, as I was sipping coffee, and ignoring the chaos swirling around me like a tornado of paper planes, silly string and Nerf bullets, I looked over at my dog. She returned the favour, and with those big beautiful brown eyes, I swear she smiled.
She’s grateful we’re all home, grateful for the chaos, grateful for the noise. I mean, can you blame her? Belly rubs on tap and there’s always someone heading outside (her favourite place).
I was immediately brought back to a place of gratefulness. Apparently, you can teach this old dog new tricks. Thanks, Stella <3
This DIY is dedicated to Stella, our wise four-legged friend.
tips + tricks
No. 1 –> Measure your pooch! This printable pattern was developed in 2-inch size increments for a custom fit, and as with any sewing pattern you want to measure!
No. 2 –> Use knits, use wovens, use a mix! This is a really versatile pattern – so use what you’ve got!
No. 3–> Be aware that different fabrics behave differently. A dog bandana made with a light knit will be more slouchy and naturally looser on the neck, while a bandana made with woven fabric will be more stable and hold to the base of the neck in a cowl fashion.

Bring on your best looking pooch!
