5 Ways Craft Bandanas

There are so many brilliant and cute ideas to craft with bandanas. Remember those?

You probably got one at summer camp one year, and wore it tied around your head.  Or maybe you borrowed one from your dad to go with your cowboy costume for Halloween.  

Well, no matter what your past experience has been with bandanas, give these squares of paisley-printed fabric a second chance in your craft projects.

Just think about it:  they come in lots of bright colors, bandanas are easy to find and cheap to buy, PLUS they represent a significant amount of fabric that has already been hemmed!  

Check out these 5 Ways to Craft with Bandanas.

Here’s my daughter, modeling one of the bandana skirts I made for her, recently.  It was a cinch to whip this skirt together with a single bandana, some coordinating scrap fabric, and a bit of elastic.
