So you know that time you were headed to the rodeo and needed something country to wear? Or maybe you’re headed line dancing and want to fit in but couldn’t find your jean jacket? Well, today I’ve got you covered with this super simple bandana scarf that looks fabulous on my little model baby but would look awesome on you too! And when I say simple, I mean really simple!
All you need is some fun, lightweight fabric, some scissors, and a sewing machine. I found my fabric at my local fabric store and bought enough to make two for under $2. For a baby size bandana you need about a 15″ square. For an adult size I would double it.
Start by cutting your fabric into a square.
If your fabric is anything like mine it will unravel like your middle school relationships. So set your sewing machine to zigzag stitch and run all along each edge. This will help minimize the unraveling while you wear it.
Now all you need to do is fold it corner to corner to make a triangle and tie it around baby’s neck. Or yours if your headed to the rodeo like we did last weekend. You can see the cutie at the rodeo in her darling little bandana scarf here.
And that’s it! I told you it was super simple.

Well, you definitely have the cutest little model, for sure!
You can’t beat a simple project, and this one is a winner! Love that western/rustic touch that custom-made bandana adds – and your little model is the sweetest! So glad you shared this scarfy project with us during SharkWeek.
Thanks Linda! :)
First of all, that is by FAR the cutest model I have seen lately! Secondly, “If your fabric is anything like mine it will unravel like your middle school relationships” is the BEST LINE EVER! You made me snort and, therefore, win today.
Oh my gosh!! That’s hilarious! I wrote that and my hubby thought I was insane. He was supposed to help me come up with a better analogy but fell asleep before he came up with something and I forgot about it. So glad I could bring you a laugh!! :)
So cute! Your model & your bandana!!
Bah ha ha. “…it will unravel like your middle school relationships.” Oh boy, you have no idea how much I appreciated that simile. So funny. And this tutorial was an inspiration-bomb if I ever did see one! And thanks for the tip on the zig zag stitch and its power to keep the ends from unraveling. I sometimes forget how powerful it can be! Thanks for being a part of Scarf Week 2015. It was bigger, better, and scarfy-er because of you! Off to pin….
