One of the biggest trends in fashion during the 1970s was constructing clothing from bandannas. Bring back that era by making a few pieces of bandanna clothing of your own. You do not need to be a professional seamstress to piece together this fashionable look. The most difficult decision will be which colour bandanna to use, and don't be surprised when all of your friends ask you to make a few pieces of bandanna clothing for them as well.

Things you need
- Safety pin
- Thin ribbon
Fold a 20 inch bandanna in half to form a shape of a triangle.
Press the folded bandanna with an iron.
Fold the top point of the triangle down approximately 4 inches.
Create a housing for the shoe lace by stitching the bandanna 1/2 inch below each fold.
Place one end of a 24 inch piece of thin ribbon onto a safety pin. Utilise the pin to guide the ribbon through the housing.
Cut a few one-half-inch slits into the bottom of the bandanna to add a little extra touch to the look.
Tie the ribbon around the wearer's neck. Tie the bottom two ends of the bandanna around the wearer's back.
Bandanna Halter Top
Cut two five-inch by two-inch strips from two different coloured bandannas.
Sew the two strips together at one end to make a single 10 inch piece. Iron the sewn hem between the strips to flatten it.
Fold the 10-inch strip lengthwise so the underside of the bandanna is out. Sew the long end together.
Turn the fabric right-side out. Tie the tie around the wearer's neck or waist.
Bandanna Necktie or Belt
Tips and warnings
- Fringe the ends of the bandanna belt for a little added touch. This can be accomplished with a pair of scissors. You can also bead the fringed belt.
