Dog bandanas are that extra little touch that shows your dog how much you love him. The positive attention he gets from wearing a cute bandana is his big reward! We explain how to make a dog bandana in four simple steps (bonus: there’s no sewing involved!). I made this one for my dog, Cocoa, and you can customize your no-sew DIY dog bandana for birthdays, special occasions, holidays or if your dog has a health issue like blindness.

Instructions to make a DIY dog bandana
See the pictures below for examples of each step.
Step 1: Cut 1 piece of fabric 14.5” x 14.5,” and the other piece 14” x 14” (this size is for a small dog). Fold edges of the printed side of larger fabric over ¼” and iron. Place smaller piece of fabric right side up on top of the back of the larger fabric. Place about ¼” of hem tape close to the edges of fabric. Do this to all four sides.
Step 2: Fold over and iron to seal.
Step 3: Place your iron-on letters on fabric and iron on according to instructions. Peel off.
Step 4: Paint with fabric paint, let dry. Fold into triangle and tie it on.
