These amazing bandanas are a collaboration with Illustrator Claire Shadomy of Salad Days and screenprinted locally by NeatPony using eco-conscious ink. We were inspired by all the artifacts of life—from keys to loose snacks to pills—celebrate all the little things in life that bring you joy. Make your bandana one of a kind by adding chainstitch embroidery! Whether it be your name, a phrase or saying—whatever—the sky is the limit up to 18 characters.

No computers involved in the monogramming process: each bandana is freehand script embroidered with a vintage Singer 114 industrial chainstitch embroidery machine. Plenty of thread colors to choose from!


  1. Choose the bandana color you prefer
  2. Write your custom chainstitched personalization (limit of 18 characters)
  3. Choose at least 2 colors of thread in the order you prefer. Selecting multiple colors ensures I can quickly fulfill your order if I'm out of your preferred thread color or if it will not show up on the bandana. You can choose up to three in the order of most preferred to least preferred!

Chainstitch embroidery works best with lower-case cursive script lettering, so all-caps and initials look pretty choppy with chainstitch and are also a pain for me to stitch. Please try not to use 2 capital letters next to each other when adding your custom phrase. Each letter is hand-steered on my vintage Singer 114 machine and is totally unique and god intended :) 

Each letter of your custom word or phrase is hand steered and "written" by hand in my studio here in Chattanooga, TN. Order turnaround time varies based on my workload, but will usually ship out within a week. 

Choose from 2 bandana colors and plenty of thread colors!

Details: 22x22” hand printed 100% cotton bandana.

    Care of your bandana(s): For longevity, I recommend hand washing and laying flat to dry, but if you’re in a pinch, washing cold delicate and hanging to dry is also okay. 

    RETURNS/EXCHANGES: No returns or exchanges are allowed on custom chainstitched items. If you are unhappy or have issues with your order, please email me:



    I offer shipping options from USPS, UPS, and FedEx. I only ship out items twice a week: on Saturdays and Wednesdays (barring any federal holidays). Please refer to each item's listed turnaround time for questions about order timing, and please allow for more shipping time during these unprecedented times. 

    The address you enter at checkout is the address I will use to ship your item to.


    Bottom line: I do not accept returns, but I do allow exchanges on some items. Many of my items are one-of-a-kind or personalized in some way, so offering open-ended returns is just not manageable for me. If you are ultimately unhappy with your purchase or customization, please email me ( and I'll do everything I can do make it right.
