Sunday Parkways puts an end to baby food stains with a new bandana use

We want to share with you how you can turn any bandana into a super cute baby bib!

          As cute as babies are, they sure can be messy. With this ingenuous bandana baby bib design your baby can fling mashed peas across the room in style. It’s time to break out those sewing kits, and embrace your inner baby fashion guru.

The first thing you’re going to do is cut your bandana into the correct “baby bib” design. We have a template down below that is absolutely foolproof! Simply, fold your bandana along the template, and cut along the lines. You’ll be left with a piece of cloth that resembles something like a boomerang.

            You are going to want two pieces of cloth cut into the same template mentioned above. These are going to be to sewn together. Now, if you want the most fashionable toddler you might want to try to mix up the patterns for each side. Get creative, and have fun with it!

            Once you have your two sides cut out, lay them on top of each other and begin to sew along the edges. Continue to sew until there is only an inch or two left to finish. Stop here, and turn the bib inside out. Now continue to sew the last opening shut to finish the bib. You’re almost done!

            Now all you need to do is attach some fasteners to the ends. You can choose to use fastener snaps, buttonholes, or even Velcro straps. Any method will do just fine as long as it is strong enough to withstand whatever mess your little one throws at it!

            And just like that you’ll have yourself your very own bandana baby bib! Armed and ready to fight against any mess and while still looking as cute as ever.

Additionally, those who donate $40.00, or more to Sunday Parkways will also receive their very own bandana.

Sunday Parkways transforms bandanas into beautiful home décor

We want to share how you can turn any bandana just lying around into beautiful wall art!

            We all have that friend who has that living room setup that looks like it came straight out of some Pinterest blog, and we all can’t help but think; “There’s no way I could make something like this…”. Stop right there, because there is a way. With a little creativity, and a handy-dandy bandana you could have some beautiful home décor without breaking the bank.

            The first thing you’ll need to do is find something sturdy enough to wrap your bandana around. Your local craft store should have all kinds of options, but any kind of a foam board will work best. It’s easy to cut, and shape into any design you’d like! If you’re looking to use something that’s just lying around the house, a shoebox lid would be a great option too. Now, all you have to do is wrap your bandana around your base and glue down the sides with any kind of fabric glue.

            Let it dry overnight, and all that’s left is to hang up your beautiful creation! Take all your patterns and shapes, and arrange them into a fun and creative display. You’ll be left with some beautiful modern wall art that will make even your friend with the Pinterest home jealous!

Pollinator Parkways?

Sunday Parkways teams up with The City Repair Project to pilot a Pollinator Project

bee flowerPollinator species are in distress as their habitats have become threatened by various human activities. To support our pollinator friends, a collaborative of organizations including the City Repair Project, Sunday Parkways, Green Lents, Pollinator Parkways, and numerous Permaculture designers have come together to start designing and planting long strips of pollinator friendly habitat in long corridors around the metro area. This work is in part funded by the Community Watershed Stewardship Program.

Want to get dirty and help create these pollinator corridors? Want to learn about habitat restoration, placemaking, and permaculture? Come out and join us! We are looking for workshop participants, volunteers and interns, communities to open up land for planting, and additional sponsors to fund the good work. Our first event of the year starts on July 24th at the NE Sunday Parkways where we’ll be stationed at an art installation off of NE 19th and Going Street. For more info visit
