It’s Bandana Day today! You may well be wearing a bandana today and I sent the kids off to school wearing theirs. This year I sewed 4 projects using the colourful bandanas, with a focus on handy household items. I started by making a foldable shopper so I also have a bag with me with a go shopping.
My next project was a reversible bowl cover with two different colour bandanas, using the tutorial by A Kitschy Kitchen Blog. These bowl covers replace cling wrap and ideal for keeping the flies off your food and make for a pretty dining table. Use over bowls filled with chips, bread or rolls, salad or pasta. Pop them in the wash if they get dirty, but since they aren’t coated, rather use on drier food items or on bowls with a deep dish.
With my fabric scraps, I made a plastic/grocery bag holder for the kitchen. Even though I try use reusable bags, I still sometimes get plastic bags at the shops and they are also so handy to use around the house. These two tutorials by the Craftiness is not optional and Make It and Love It blogs will help you sew this easy project which is so useful and brightens up your kitchen.
This project isn’t for the home, but I couldn’t resist making this pattern which I found through Pinterest. One Lucky Day made a bunch of these purses for her girls and I just love the flap in front and how it shows off the two different bandana colours. These would make brilliant gift bags for Christmas presents.
