DIY Star Stamped Bandana

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! We’ve talked about making handmade stamps before, but I thought we’d try a different method that actually ended up working out even better and requires no special trip to the craft store.

This is so cute. Perfect for the Fourth. What were the dimensions of the fabric?
