How to make a head scarf or bandana for your 18 inch Doll.
- Cut one 8 1/2 inch square of fabric.
- With right sides together, fold in half along the diagonal. Start 1/2 inch from one corner near the fold, and stitch along the edge, around the top corner, and back towards the fold. Stop 1/2 inch before you reach the fold.
- Turn right side out and press well, being certain to push the top corner out. Tuck the raw edges to the inside of the corners as you press. Top stitch if desired.
- Cut 3/8th inch wide elastic to 2 inches. Tuck each end into a corner of the scarf and stitch in place.
