The closer July 4th gets, the more I’m drawn to stars, stripes, blue and white (oh how pervasive Martha’s seasonal influence can be!). This DIY star bandana is a fun way to dress a little festive for the fourth but also stylish. I’d love to make a skirt version too for Edie to wear!

Step 4: Hem and tie!
