  1. 1

    Purchase enough fabric to make the bandanna for your dog. Cut a square that is the appropriate size for your dog. Cut the square to measure 19 inches for small dogs, 26 inches for medium-size dogs and 31 inches for larger dogs.

  2. 2

    Turn under the edges all the way around the square. Pin in place. Sew a hem around all sides of the square.

  3. 3

    Lay the square on a flat surface. Fold the square in half on the diagonal to make a triangle. Tie around your dog's neck.

Tips and warnings

  • A good way to measure what size square to cut for your dog's bandanna is to measure the circumference of your dog's neck and add 5 inches to it.
  • Do not tie the bandanna around the dog's neck too tightly. This will make it difficult for the dog to breathe.
