DIY Bandana Dress

How to make a cute and cheap bandana dress for your little girl

I am not a sewer. I kind of hate it. But, this bandana dress was insanely easy for me to figure out how to make for my daughter! I made 3 of them and they looked so cute on her! I even had her wear it as she grew as a sort of shirt because it looked so darling. There were a few images of paisley dresses on Pinterest that I had seen after I had cowkid 1 that caught my eye. So, I decided to wing it in making one myself out of bandanas. After all 2 bandanas are around $4, so that’s not much of a loss if it turned out horrid. To my surprise, my easy peasy design worked and I headed back to Walmart for more colours!

Below are all the fun details to make one for your little girl too.

Supplies Needed:
Sewing Machine
2 Bandanas


(scroll down to see diagram)

Step 1. Wash and dry the bandanas. Decide what is the front and back (usually the back is slightly faded). Flip the top front over to the backside and sew in a straight line. Do this on both bandanas. This is where your ribbon will be threaded through so how much you fold over is pending on the ribbon size. Mine was folded over about 2 inches.

Step 2. Place the bandanas on top of each other so the fronts are touching. Then leave a gap for where the arm goes (about 3-5 inches may be) and sew a diagonal line inside to the bottom corner of the dress on each side. The sew line shouldn’t be too far into the bandanas.

Step 3. The dress is currently inside out so flip it outside in and thread the ribbon through the top part. You can do two ribbons and tie them over each shoulder or make it long and thread it through both tieing it only over the one shoulder.

Afghan Blankets Made with Love

I was a bit hesitant to do this post at first because, well, I’m not sure if the other grandchildren on my husband’s side received as many afghans as we have from Grandma Ruth…

She has been a most talented knitter and crocheter so I can’t help but show off some of her afghan blankets she has given us. They are beautiful and lovingly made. We definitely adore them. Here’s a showcase of the four that we have of hers!

I always bring this one out as fall decor because it reminds me of candy corns. I know, they’re disgusting to eat, but very festive for the season!

This one is my personal favorite. As a new wife, it is often hard to find a place in your husband’s family. This was given to me by her just before or after we were married. She knew I loved purple. She made me feel so welcome to the family when she gave me this. I felt honoured to get to receive one for myself!

Though I don’t have the talent of knitting or crocheting, I so appreciate those that do. It is such an art of love.
