Priceless Keepsakes: Customized Patchwork Bandanas.

Updated: Jun 9

Customized patchwork bandanas are the newest keepsake to hit the But First, West studio. What makes these so special? You get to send us a peiece of meaningful scrap fabric and a love note for us to include in your custom bandana is what! Personalized pet clothing is taking the pet fashion world by storm, offering a unique and stylish way to showcase your pet's personality and But First, West sure took it one step further. We sat down with Cindy + Cabbie (@goodcabbie) to learn more about the most meaningful But First, West product to hit the market.


"The custom piece is beautiful on its own, but having it mean so much more increases the value and beauty to me." - Cindy + Cabbie
 

But First West: We would love to know more about the fabric scrap you sent and why it is meaningful to you?


Cindy + Cabbie: Cabbies' dad is currently in his second deployment gone away from home and Cabbie definitely has felt his absence. It's never easy being away from family, and Cabbie will still search for him when we get home and will also wait by the door for his arrival. We sent BFW a piece of fabric from Dad's old military uniform (It was part of the inside pocket of his trousers) and now she can wear him close no matter how far away he is.


But First West: Why did you want to put a piece of scott’s (dog dad) military uniform into a bandana?


Cindy + Cabbie: It holds so much significance. Having dad close, remembering our families' values and sacrifices, it's a timeless piece that will forever be part of who we are. With a baby on the way we are thrilled to be able to pass these pieces on to generations to come!


But First West: Tell us a little about the custom wording placed on the bandana and what it means to you:


Cindy + Cabbie: "No matter where I am, I'll be with you always Schweetums. Love, Dad". Scott has many nick names for Cabs but the most frequently used by him is "schweetums peatums" while slowly evolved from sweet pea over time. And it's special that now cabbie can wear a piece of dad no matter where we go or where we are!


But First West: What were the feelings you had when you saw the custom bandana for the first time?


Cindy + Cabbie: So much joy, and of course a few happy tears were shed. The custom piece is beautiful on its own, but having it mean so much more increases the value and beauty to me.


 


Tailored to Perfection


Getting a personalized bandana from But First, West allows you to hold onto a memory and keep it close to those you love most. Each piece is tailored to your size and all the additional fabrics are hand selected by the But First, West studio to compliment your piece of scrap fabric pawfectly. Having your own unique personality showcased through this memorable custom piece is something you will keep reaching your paws for in future years to come.


Unleashing Creativity


One of the most exciting aspects of a custom patchwork bandana is the opportunity to unleash your creativity. Being a part of designing a custom outfit for your pet allows you to showcase different colors, patterns, and styles to create a look that is as unique as your pet. Whether you prefer a subtle design or a bold statement piece, a personalized patchwork bandana lets you bring your vision to life.


The Pawfect Gift


Looking for a special gift for a fellow pet lover? Personalized pet clothing makes a thoughtful and heartwarming present for any occasion. Whether it's a birthday, holiday, or just because, a customized patchwork bandana for their furry companion is sure to bring a smile to their face. Our sweet ambassador Koda and his mama Mia had the best idea for an extra special keepsake. Mia's mom (Koda's grandmother) sent our shop a meaningful piece of scrap fabric with a love note for Koda to gift them. It is the sweetest sentiment to have a lifelong keepsake that Koda can wear proudly.


Being Kind to Mother Earth:


Us here at But First, West love to not only source deadstock fabric whenever possible but we save the bits of our scrap fabric pieces from our original designs and repurpose them into an entriely new product ... These scrap pieces are the foundation of our patchwork bandana! We like to send the message that we can do better with our waste and keep it out of the landfill. By embracing a meaningful, personalized piece, you are sure to hold onto it for years to come!
