Embroidered Bandana DIY

This is a super simple DIY that may not turn out so great when you first try if you’ve never used the decorative stitches on your sewing machine before. But after a few practice runs it’ll be a breeze to make these DIY embroidered bandanas!

I’ve made a fringe version of this from a yard of fabric last year, and funnily enough this embroidered bandana DIY was easier to than that one was. And plaid scarf didn’t even require any sewing!

Materials

Embroidered Bandana DIY

1/2 yard of fabric of your choice  | coordinating thread | sewing machine | scissors

Directions

Embroidered Bandana DIY

Cut a 15″ by 15″ square from your fabric. But really, you can make these bandanas whatever size you want.

String your machine with your coordinating thread. You may have noticed that the color thread featured in the “materials” picture is blue, but the bandana has green embroidery. I ended up changing my mind when I was doing a few test runs. I had an easier time with the green thread that is meant for quilting (it’s a bit stiffer than all purpose thread).

Embroidered Bandana DIY

Choose a decorative stitch and do a few practice runs with it. I was too gung-ho and decided to just go for it, so my first border is a bit uneven and wonky. It’s alright though since I’m the one wearing it and don’t mind.

Trim the excess fabric around the edges after you’ve done a pass on each side of the bandana.
