See It Again Saturday: Bandanna Shirt Tutorial

In case you missed my guest post at Seven Thirty Three this week here is again!

Bandanna Shirt Tutorial

What you'll Need:
Embroidery Floss
Wonder Under
Iron & Ironing Board
Pencil & Scissors

Step One:
Measure your bandanna. Just eyeball it, it's supposed to be messy. Trust me!

Step Two:
Now you want your bandanna to have movement, not be "glued" to the shirt. To accomplish this place bandanna right side down on your ironing board and mess/crumple up slightly. Now iron your wonder under rough side down onto your messy bandanna.

Step Three:
Trim your bandanna to the appropriate size, flip back over and pin to the shirt.

Step Four:
Turn inside out and use a pen to trace where you want it to be on the collar, unpin and cut!

Step Five:
Peel off the backing of the Wonder Under, place on shirt, cover with a damp cloth and iron on.

Step Six:
 Hand stitch around the edge with the embroidery floss and you're done! I chose not to seal the edges of the bandanna with fray check because I want it to fray a little...y'know go along with the whole "messy" thing!

And I'll be linking up as always with {These Great Blogs} including The Boardwalk Bragfest!
