Ten Minute No-Sew Doggie Bandanna Tutorial

The dogs in this house were feeling festive and wanted something to show their Irish spirit so I whipped up this quick project and wanted to share it with you!

This is a ridiculously quick and easy project that even kids can get in on. Just a few cuts and a little pressing and you’re done.

What you need:

  • 20 inch square of fabric (This will make 2 large dog bandannas and 1 small dog bandanna, perfect for this crazy house.)
  • 6 inches of Heat n Bond
  • Pinking Shears
  • Iron

Fold your fabric square into triangles. Bring one corner to meet the opposite corner making a big triangle.

Choose another corner and fold that over to the opposite corner.

Press the folds.  When you open up your square, your make a X in the middle of your square.

Using your pinking shears to keep the fraying to a minimum follow the creases and cut out your triangle.

Then cut out another triangle right next to the one you just cut out.  So you will now have 2 smaller triangles and one big triangle.

The large side of the big triangle will have a pinked edge.  From that edge cut 2 strips about 1 1/2 inches thick.  Just eyeball, no measuring that will slow us up!

Cut the strips in half on the crease.

Cut your Heat n Bond into 1 inch strips.  Two for each bandanna.  Place a strip of Heat n Bond in the corner along the long side of the triangle.  Attach the strip according to Heat n Bond package directions.

I didn’t take pictures of the small bandanna but this is what you do.  With the remaining triangle, cut a 1 1/2 inch strip from the long side of the triangle and cut the strip in half.  Then assemble like above.

And you’re finished!! Three doggie bandannas in minutes!

Tie around your pup’s neck in a bow and let them go crazy!!

You may recall we have three crazy pup’s in this house, the little guy is at the vet so he missed the photo shoot but trust me he’s rocking his bandanna all around town.

You could even adopt this for the kiddies’ Thanksgiving day parade, hello pilgrim bonnet!

Now I’m off to the kitchen to get the corned beef and cabbage started. Blech! I’m not a fan but there are those in this house that insist on it.  I am so glad today is beautiful, I can keep all of the windows open to help the house from smelling too badly.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!!
