This DIY bandana has the potential to be so creative! You can cut a 22 x 22 inch square in any left over fabric, or use a standard bandana as your base. Customization is limitless - embroidery, tie-dye, and even making designs with some fabric paint would work. You can even break out those bedazzling kits! The bandana is your blank canvas, and you are the artist. Your pup will adore your final masterpiece, and will love getting to show it off on walks!
