DIY Fringe Bandana Scarf

I'm getting fringy with it in today's DIY! I am going to teach you how to make your very own fringe bandana. This scarf is perfect for the summer months, but is also great for adding a bit of drama to any fall or winter ensemble. Keep on reading below to learn how to make one yourself. 

  • Bandana
  • Chainette fringe trim
  • Scissors
  • Sewing machine
  • Straight pins
  • Thread

Measure the length of one side of the bandana, and add 1 inch. This will be the length of fringe you need. Example: If your bandana is 22 inches, long on one side, your fringe will need to be 23 inches long. Fold under 1/2 an inch on each end of the fringe.

Place the fringe along the edge of your bandana, overlapping slightly. Use straight pins to hold the fringe into place. Make sure to also pin down the folded edges at the ends. Use a sewing machine to attached the fringe to the bandana. Repeat these steps along the opposite side of the bandana. 

This is a great project for beginner sewers. The steps are very simple, but the difference of material makes it an interesting challenge for new or first time sewers. If you are more experienced, this project will probable take anywhere from 10 to 20 minutes, depending on how big your bandana is, and how much fringe you are adding.
