I posted this to my blog today:

Inspired by such blogs as Mary Olsen's Crafter's Guru and Jan DiCintio's Daisy Janie, I whipped up this little summer bandana shirt for my daughter. She's eight, so it'll fit her perfectly for a good long while as a baggy and breezy shirt, but it could also fit a toddler as a dress.

Another Bandada Shirt by WireMySoul

I found these bright and gorgeous bandanas at the dollar store last time I was there, and bought two each of my daughter's favourite colours to wear: turquoise and green. After washing and ironing, I followed the instructions (from memory actually, it was that easy) I'd seen on both the websites I'd seen this on and made a cute turquoise top. I sewed all the seams down on this one, and embellished the bottom front with a few Tulip's "Glam it Up" iron-on crystals.

I'm considering making something different for her from the green bandanas. A skirt maybe? If she really likes this shirt, then I'll make her another. I hope it's really warm out this weekend, so I can see my girl in this!

Check out the links above for those instructions and try it yourself!

Ah, that's so cute. I bet she'll love it. I would if I was smaller.

Me too! I wish I could wear it myself hehe. She does like it, though it's not really hot enough to wear it yet so she's saying things like, "I love it, but I'll want to wear a shirt under it."

Hahaha! Just wait until summer hits.

Yeah. It's not too warm here yet. We've had a few nice days. Today was chilly, but you wouldn't tell by looking at me. Been running around in shorts today.
