I'm not gonna give you the exhaustive list provided on the back of the bandana packaging, but thought I'd pick a few of my favs.
- mask...if you're a preschooler or a bank robber...
- fancy food wrapper....bandana? fancy?
- emergency diaper--for a mouse maybe. It'd have to be a small emergency, that's for sure!
- make a bikini....???? let's picture this...wet bandana clinging in crevices...only if they throw in a free download of photoshop.
- and, #50...."sew into a soft wallet"--the only thing less supportive than a bandana would have to be a piece of toilet paper. Which brings me back to #4....a bikini?! sorry, can't get over it.
Although I do appreciate the nice bandana people for fanning our creative spark, I did already have my own use in mind when I picked up a few of these at Michael's (sorry Lisa, they're closer). Dane's room is a cowboy/western room, and I wanted to make him a crib mobile. We'll make that Craft Use #51.
So, this is what I used: some sort of duct work circle thing from Lowe's (I just wandered around in that area until I found the size/look I wanted), twine, ceiling hook, fun fabric, western shapes (did a google search for the images I wanted), cardboard, bandanas, hot glue, modge podge, exacto knife, and pinking shears.
Step 1: Print and cut the shapes wanted. Since I was doing a western theme, I chose a cactus, horseshoe, boot, cowboy hat, and sheriff star.
I would rate this project at a medium rare level. After you get all the stuff together, you can get it done in half a day. If you decide you want to do and need help with a particular step, let me know!
Finished western baby mobile!
