Cut bandana in half diagonally to create two triangular pieces, and set one half aside for later decoration. Fold diagonal raw edge in by approximately 1.3 cm (½") to create finished edge, and crease. Fold new edge over about 6.4 cm (2½") to create channel for dog collar. To make a smaller scarf for a smaller pet, as pictured, make one more fold, then press a crease to create new edge. Trim edges, if necessary.
Use all five pastel fabric markers to colour in all bones and the ‘o’s in each “WOOF!”. In the top 6.4 cm (2½") portion of the scarf only (the part that will cover the dog collar), use Hotfix tool to apply clear 5mm crystals to the centre pad of each paw print, and coloured crystals to centre of the coloured bones.
Glue (and let dry) or stitch down along the edge to hold the folded edge in place. Slide dog collar into the scarf's channel and apply to pet!
Place a piece of cardboard behind the bandana when using the Hotfix tool, to protect your working surface. If you prefer, use fabric or gem glue to affix flat back crystals, instead of the Hotfix tool. Remember to let glue dry fully before sliding collar into the scarf.
Adult supervision is required at all times. Iron should only be used by an adult.
