Tutorial ~ 5 min. Toddler Bandanna Top

Here is how I made this fun top for Ms. E to wear to the airport in about 5 minutes.

{It took longer to convince Ms. E to let me put it on her than it did to create it.}

And you are done!

Note ~The bandana was washed and dried before I started sewing.  That is why the top was ready to wear once I finished sewing.  Bandanas have loads of stiffener in them when you purchase them.  So they really need to be washed and dried at least once {if not twice} before your kiddo gets to wear them.

They are cheap to purchase, $0.99 at Hobby Lobby, and come in a variety of styles and colors.  So they are a great first outfit attempt for new sewers.

You can use an left over ribbon or skinny fabric strip you have laying around.  The piece I used is a skinny strip left-over from cutting mini squares to make snowball quilt blocks.  It won’t last long, but I also don’t leave ribbons in when running stuff through the laundry.

You can tie the bandanna together in the back rather than sewing.  The reason I sewed them together was or less bulk {especially when riding in the carseat}, and that Ms. E can put this top on all by her little independent self.

Hope you found these directions clear and concise.  If you have any questions, leave a comment and I will e-mail a clarification and also post below in the comments section.
