Make it from Bandana

Bandanas may keep the sweat off your forehead , but they can actually be useful with a little creativity.

If you are no good sewing ( as me) , this project is perferct for you (for us) !! Just cut and tie together two bandanas to make a cute pillow for your room.

Bandana Napkin Ring

To fit standard dinner napkins, cut a bandanna into 6- by 9-inch strips. Fold each strip in thirds lengthwise, then fold in thirds widthwise. Sew a button on one end, about 1 inch from the edge. (Choose any colorful loose buttons you may have on hand; they don't need to match.) Then cut a corresponding buttonhole on the opposite end of the strip.

Not only decorative, these bandanna covers also prevent strappy tops and dresses from slipping off hangers. 1. Fold a bandanna in half; slip a hanger in between fabric so its bottom meets the fold (fabric should cover the hanger's front and back). 2. Trace the shape of the hanger's arms on the bandanna; cut, leaving room for the hook and a 1/2-inch hem on the side of the bandanna facing up. 3. Fold hem over the hanger's arm, pulling the back side of the bandanna up to meet it, and secure with fabric glue; let dry. 4.Trim any remaining excess fabric.
