Collars are a dogs best fashion accessory

love patterns, prints, and color. I also love spoiling my dog, Padfoot. One way I spoil him is by making him collars for all our "special" occasions. By wrapping fabric around the dog collar, the possibilities for adorable dog collars are endless.

    Attach the triglide. Thread one side of the fabric around the middle and pull it through about an inch or two. Stitch down the width of your collar by sewing the loose end back to the collar itself. Back over the entire stitch to make sure it is secure.
