You see that once your ribbon is inside the casing and tied, those pesky buttonholes are impossible to see!
These bandanas are printed with a blank 1" border. Cut this border off in one piece, setting aside the scraps for making a handle. Lay bandanas out, wrong sides together, lining up edges as best as possible. Using fabric shears, cut a slit every 3/4" cutting up to the most inner printed square on the bandana. You will be cutting out the corners and discarding these small squares of fabric.
Beginning at one of the corners, take one of the fringes from the top and one from the bottom and tie them together in a double knot. Tie one on each corner. Continue tying all around except for the top. This will be left open.
To make the handle, cut each long scrap into two equal pieces. Discard one piece and braid the other three together knotting at each end. Knot and end to each side of the bag. Iron the top fringes down on each side.
