Reversible Over the Collar Dog Bandanas are a great beginner sewing project.

Dog in Winter Barn Quilts Fabric Bandana

They are easy things to sew and sell or just a fun way to use your fabric scraps and keep your own dogs feeling stylish!

I’ll walk you through all the steps to making an over the collar dog bandana that will be the perfect size for your dog.

If you are a crafter, at the end of the video I also demonstrate how easy it is to add dog bandana quotes you make with your Cricut or Silhouette cutting machine.


  • 32 secs – Supplies
  • 34 secs – Determining the Dog Bandana size
  • 1:57 – Cut your fabric to size
  • 3:53 – Sew your bandana
  • 7:55 – Adding dog bandana quotes with Cricut or Silhouette

Once you try these you may get hooked. They are quick to make and a great way to cut down on your extra fabric stash.

Make them to sell, for gifts, fundraisers and more. You can get inexpensive dog collars at dollar stores and other discount retailers so this is a project that won’t break the bank.

Dog bandanas are also a great sewing project for beginners or to teach kids to sew.
