Bandanas for Philly

My sister asked me to make her pit bull, Philly, some bandanas. I used red quilter’s cotton for the exterior and a red flannel for the interior. I know bandanas aren’t normally lined, but it’s getting chilly here now. I wanted Philly to stay warm on those crisp fall walks.

I cut both fabrics into 20″ x 20″ squares and then slit down the diagonal. That gave me the fabric for both bandanas.



The appliqué crested “P”, for Super Philly is from Applique Creations. You can find the design here. And yes, I know my color order isn’t the same as Superman’s. Sarah wanted red bandanas and picked the color order out. It was the first comment Danny made. “You know that’s not how the colours go, right?” Yes. Yes, I know.



The rescue paw print is from Urban Threads, and can be found here.

I was once again reminded why I shouldn’t sew past midnight. I sewed my two pieces right sides together and completely forgot to leave a space for turning. “Get the seam ripper!”


Look at Jackson!



About manningthemachine

I'm Laura. Mama to four, and wife to one awesome guy. I'm ever so slightly sarcastic. Just a little bit. I like to quote movies, but since our house is managed by little people, most of those quotes come from kiddie shows. At least my husband generally gets the references. It makes me feel less awkward. I took sewing lessons starting at the age of 8, through the Kids Can Sew program. I took lessons for four or five years. Then I became a snotty teen and decided sewing was lame. I've repented of my ways, and enjoy sewing for my little ones. And sometimes other people. And almost never for myself. Oh hey. My blog name. "Manning The Machine." I think it's probably only funny if you know me in real life. And even then, maybe it is only funny to me. My last name is Manning. This is a blog about my sewing. Manning The (Sewing) Machine. Do you get it? Do you? No. That's fine. I think it's funny even if you don't.
