DIY Bandanas for Your Pets

It’s no secret that I love shopping at Tuesday Morning. You’ll find me there at least once a month, and I’m pretty familiar with everything in the kitchen aisle, and of course, the crafting aisle. But on my most recent trip I was by myself (no kids!) and wanted to explore a little more, so I browsed through the pet section of my local store. I’d glanced at it in passing during previous trips, but this time I went in search of goodies for our three dogs.

There was so much to choose from, I was quite impressed! For example, did you know Tuesday Morning sells grain-free and gluten-free dog treats? I had no idea. I grabbed a few of the healthy treat options, some new stainless steel food bowls and a few doggie toys. I have outdoor farm dogs, but if your pets are used to staying indoors, you should check out their huge selection of uber-comfy dog and cat beds. They looked so soft that I couldn’t resist touching a few, and the materials were really great quality.

Fat quarter bundles- $3.99 compare at $12.99
1-yard of 100% wool fabric – $2.99 compare at $9.99

Obviously, no trip to Tuesday Morning is complete until I check out the crafting inventory. I found some great new fabric selections including fat quarter bundles of quilting cottons, 100% wool apparel fabric, some cute flannel sets and even 100% cotton duck cloth!

I used some of the fabric to create bandanas for my dogs and goats, which turned out to be such a fun and easy project! I created a video tutorial so you can learn how to make them yourself. All you need is a few fat quarters and your basic sewing supplies. These bandanas are great because they slip right over your pet’s collar. After you make one, you’ll be making them by the dozens for every occasion and holiday.

Honestly, you never know what you’ll find at Tuesday Morning. The 40-minute drive is always worth it for me, and the prices can’t be beat. My pets are happy with their stylish new duds, and I added more fabric to my stash. Win-win!
