tutorial- scrap fabric dog collar

i'm happy to share with you one of my favorite projects. if bailey could talk, i think she'd agree that this is her favorite collar.

skill level: easy peasy
time: 30 minutes
supplies: dog collar and scrap fabric
 1) cut scrap fabric into skinny strips. i've found that 5 inches by 3/4 inches works best, but it will look great whichever way you choose. if you do less than 4 inches it gets difficult to tie in a knot.

 2) start tying the fabric strips onto the collar. i like doing the knot on the outside, but either way works. at the bottom of the post there's a picture of how the knots on the inside look.
 3) make sure the side without the knot is flat without wrinkles or twists.
 4) continue tying strips throughout the collar. i recommend scrunching them together tightly, so that you can add a variety of colors.

 5) your collar will look like this once the strips cover the entire collar.
 6) trim down the strips with a scissors for a nice, clean look.


 ta-da!! you now have a fancy, unique dog collar

here's a picture of a previous collar that i made that had the knots on the inside. i think they both look nice, but i prefer the ones with the knots on the outside. which one do you prefer?

This is so cute and easy. It will look great on my dog. I just happened to write a post about her today. Check it out. (I don't normally promote my blog in comments, but I just thought this a funny coincidence that I found this project today.)
