DIY: How To Make a Bandana Apron

Bandanas are the perfect fabric and material for quick projects becuase all the edges are hemmed for you. This bandana apron comes together in 30 minutes or less, and the kids love it! My daughter uses hers while playing restaurant. I easily cutomised the pockets to hold all of her waitress job duties too!


  • Large square bandana (You can size up the bandana for larger aprons.)
  • 2 metres ribbon


1-2 copy


Step 1: Lay the bandana right side down and fold one side up about 12 cm, wrong sides together. Pin at the bottom and sew together. (See blue stitch line above.)


Step 2: Flip the bandana to the right side and bring the bottom up to create a pocket. Stitch the bottom closed as shown above.


Step 3: Stitch the ends closed and stitch additional vertical lines to create pockets.


Step 4: Place the centre of the ribbon and the centre of the apron together and pin in place.


Step 5: Stitch the ribbon to the top of the bandana and you’re done!
