Walk in the Park – part 2

The Collar!

Create a coordinating collar for your furry friend with a couple pieces of hardware and some scrap fabric!  It’s so easy you might make a collar for each day of the week…or maybe just for the holidays?

Materials

4″ x 20″ strip of fabric (or piece multiple fabrics together to make a 20″ long strip)

1″ D ring

1″ parachute clip

1″ strap slide

1. Fold each long side into the middle, press with iron. Fold again to form 1″ wide strip.

2. Topstitch 1/4″ from both edges.

3. Let the fun begin….this is the tricky part.  First slide the strap through the strap slide as shown here (feed from the bottom, up and over the bar, then down again).

4. Pull the strap through the slide, fold the raw edge under 1″ and stitch through all three layers (be sure to backstitch at both ends)

5. Take the other raw edge and slip from underneath up through one side of the parachute clip as shown below. Then feed the strap down through the other opening on the same side of the clip.

6.  Feed the raw edge through the strap slide, feed from the bottom, up and over the bar then back down through the other side of the slide.

7. Slip the raw edge through the D ring then feed it through the other side of the parachute clip (feed from the top so the raw edge ends up on the underside of the collar)

8. Slide raw edge under the D ring and back toward the parachute clip as shown. Stitch and backstitch as close to the D ring as possible. Stitch again 1/4″ from the first stitch, be sure to stitch through all 3 layers of the collar strap.
