Two-Sided Collar Bandana With Pattern

I love the idea of this being a two-sided collar bandana. Because if you are not in the mood to see one color or print, you can simply flip it over and have it on the other side.

While this collar bandana was made for smaller dog’s colors, it can easily be made for larger dogs. You follow the same steps to make it larger. But when you cut the fabric you make larger pieces.

Supplies Needed:

  • Pins or Clips
  • Sewing Machine
  • Iron & Ironing Board
  • Thread (match the color of the fabrics)
  • Scissors
  • Cut Out Printed Pattern
  • 1 Paw Print Fabric Piece 10″x10″ (or print of choice)
  • 1 Green Fabric Piece 10″x10″ (or color of choice)
  • Fabric Chalk (or pen or pencil)

How To Make This Dog Craft:

Start by laying the fabrics so that it is face down.

Pin pattern to fabric and trace around

Lay the cut-out pattern on top of the fabrics and pin it to the fabric to hold it in place.

Next use the pen or fabric chalk to mark the pattern all the way around to it makes a line on the fabric.

Fabric pieces cut out

Unpin the pattern. Use the scissors to cut the fabric pieces out. You will need one piece cut out of each of the fabrics. Because we want it to be two sided with different color/print on each side.

Pin fabrics together

Now lay the triangle pieces on top of each with the right sides touching. Then pin or clip together on the two sides.

Sew fabrics together on pinned sides

Use about a 1/4 seam allowance to sew them together. Sew down the two sides that are pinned but leave the top open.

Turn right side out and iron fabric

Turn it right side through that top open area then iron it so that it is nice and flat.

Making The Collar Area & Attaching:

Lay the long strips on top of each other with the right sides touching. Pin together along one of the longest sides.

Sew two long strips along one edge

Then sew them together along the pinned side. Use about 1/4 sem allowance here too.

Iron two pieces flat

After you sew it lay it face down and iron it so that the seam flaps are opened.

Fold ends and pin in place

While it is still laying face down, fold each of the ends over by 1/4 inch or just slightly over 1/4 and pin it in place.

Sew the pinned ends down. This time you want to try to stay about the middle of that fold. Do both ends.

Then fold it in half along the long seam and iron flat.

Fold raw edges of fabric inside

Then on the open end of the triangle, fold the raw fabric edge in by about 1/4 inch. Insert the raw edge side of the long pieces inside of the triangle piece and pin it in place.

And the last thing to do is to sew them together.

Pieces being stitched together on a sewing machine

Then you want to sew across the pinned pieces to sew together. But this time do a backstitch at the start and finish with this to make sure everything is locked in place.

So simply slide the collar through the open ends of the bandana and put it on the dog.
