    Upcycled Bandanas

    A member of the board offered a bunch of bandanas for sale several months ago. She probably thought I was nuts when I bought a BUNCH of them, but I had this project in mind.

    I made dinner napkins by sewing two bandanas together, turning them, and stitching around the edge. They are a great size, wash beautifully, and will get softer with more use and washing. There are more than are pictured--I've now got lots of napkins!

    What a great idea Angelia!! I've never seen bandanas with strawberries and Halloween stuff on them. I always think about the traditional bandana fabric the cowboys wear when I hear "bandana" . Sure shocked me. Thanks for sharing.
    A finished quilt excites me!! Whether is it mine or yours!

    Hi Angelina, I am the one that sold these to you. I am glad you found a great use for them. I have also used bandanas for napkins. They work great for that. I also use them in bowls for when I make home made rolls.

    I think the traditional ones would be great--especially for picnics or barbeques.
