I just wanted to show you guys how easy it is to make your furry friend a fancy schmancy collar! I dont believe I have ever made a tut so hope its helpful!

Step 1: pin your fabric/ribbon to the webbing, I like to use fabric scraps that I have ironed out like bias tape.


Step 2a: sew the fabric on, I prefer to use invisible thread for this step, but youcan use what ever you want!


Step 2b:sew the other side, if Im making a kitty collar I usually use a zig-zag stitch.


oooh invisible thread!!!


for the rest of the steps I recommend using a strong thread such as upholstery strength thread, its safer for your pooch!

Step 3a: the hardware, you can put either piece on the end, I just prefer to put the female end, also you need to put the d ring on during this step.


Step 3b: you will sew where its pinched




I like to do an "x" stitchhere


Step 4:the "hard" part, its not that bad,just kinda confusing at first, Im just going to show pics, if you need me to explain it I can!








Step 5: Sew where its pinched


Its kinda a pain to sew it but its not that bad!


and your done!!

This is awesome. Did you just reuse hardware from an old collar or did you find somewhere to buy just the hardware? Thank you so much for the tute, it's amazing how expensive those buggers are!

I sell them on my etsy site so I buy all my hardware and webbing form an amazing online store, who I am in no way affiliated with, I just spend tons of money there!  Wink http://www.cdwplus.com/index.html

What a great idea!  I no longer have dogs and my cat, Isabella won't keep anything around her neck (maybe diamonds - I haven't tried that yet). lol

Uh, I don't know if you know this, but I think there is a universal rule that if you make a pet craft, then there MUST be at least one gratuitous pic of said cute animal with said craft!

Good tut.  I love the fabrics/colours you used!
