See the girl in pink in the lower left hand corner? That’s me at the blessing of the bikes. Since I’ve started motorcycling, I have discovered the value of the do rag/bandana/whatever you want to call it. When I used to run, I’d use a hat or maybe a headband, but my face and hair would STILL get all sweaty. Then I picked up a buff at our local running store. It’s a tubular bandana–very handy, and I kept intending to sew one for myself . . .
Well, that never quite happened.
Then, when DH and I were working on our fence project and I soaked through my one buff (gross, I know) I realized that between gardening and our new deck project I was going to need something else to keep the sweat off my face. But did I really want to spend $12 for a sweat rag?
The answer is no. And then, it dawned on me. Instead of sewing a tube, why not just use t shirt material to make my own bandana? It would be extra absorbent! So I grabbed an old t shirt and a pair of scissors, used another of my bandanas as a template, and voila! Just by cutting off the sleeves and scoop neck part, I ended up with two bandanas out of one old t shirt. Why didn’t I think of that before?
