So we got our cat one of those cheap-o nylon collars at Wally World and within a week she had scratched to He**!!  I chopped it up and now she's our Hipster Cat!!
Here's my before and after...

That's really nice!  I applaud you in being able to get your cat to wear a collar too,lol.

that's great!  how did you make it?  my cat needs something nice and wide like that--and softer than the store-bought ones.

that's great!  how did you make it? 
I just took some cotton fabric that I had here at home.  Made a tube, turned it right side out and followed the drawing I sketched before hacking apart the old collar!  I used the same hardware, just replaced the fabric.  I also put some top stitching on it so that it will stay flat and look pretty.

Need any more help?  Just let me know.

 Shocked that;s a great idea! why didn't I think of that?!
 I just throw the old collars out, and with 3 cats in the house, that's a loooot of collars..

How's it holding up?

It's holding up rather well.  With all her scratching and abuse she puts on it I'm surprised to not see any pulled threads!

My only suggestion for next time is to use an interfacing or a little thicker fabric. The two plies of cotton are 'ok' for the sliding adjuster, but I would feel better if it was a little thicker, making that adjuster less likely to slide if pulled(or scratched) too hard. We haven't had any problems yet, but that's the only think I can foresee going wrong.

Good Luck! Post a photo if you make some!! Grin
