I have been crafting and, loving it, since I was just a little girl. My Nana's and Grandmother's were all very talented crafters. I loved to visit on Sundays with them - they would show me what they made that week and I was always amazed, intrigued and full of hope that I would get to "craft" one day. And that one day finally came, and I have never stopped!View all patterns by designer (11) »
Your pups are very lucky, they have you! Why not let them enjoy "their pot of gold" by dressing them for St. Patrick's day in a lucky custom made dog collar! This new tutorial from The Preppy Owl includes easy, illustrated steps to help you make this adorable collar to keep your fur-coated kid safe and comfortable, and let them proudly display that they have found their own pot of gold this year!
Ideal for St. Patrick's Day, these pet collars can also be made year-round with fabric variations - imagine dressing your dog in a patriotic collar with a country-style stars-and-stripes heart, or completing his yellow-brick-road gear with a Scarecrow-themed heart!
If you're thinking that you don't have much time or aren't much good at sewing, don't worry - these tutorials are easy enough for beginners and versatile enough to suit more practiced seamstresses, too. The resulting collars are adjustable, safe, and strong.
Like all DIY tutorials from The Preppy Owl, this newest addition to the line is written for creative visual learners (I know how many of us crafters aren't much for following the directions!). It's simple to follow the clear instructions and you'll be assisted at every step with pictures of the process, making it even easier to complete a dog collar you can display with pride!
The tutorial includes the following:
* Easy-to-follow instructions on how to make a St. Patrick's Day (or all the time!) dog collar
* Directions to make the easy, adorable heart embellishment
* Step-by-step detailed pictures to visually guide you through the collar-making process
* 5 collar size patterns that are fully adjustable and will fit any neck size ranging from 7" to 29"
* A complete materials list
* The name of a company where you can inexpensively buy top-quality hardware to finish your collar efforts.
Don't forget all the holidays that are fast approaching in which your furry friend can proudly display your masterpieces! And imagine the rave reviews you and your best friend will receive!
