Here’s my contribution to the Handmade Costumes BlogHop. A big Thank You goes out to Izzy, my daughter’s dog for being the best model ever. It seems if you leave your pet under my care for a week you just never know what they might be wearing when you get them back!  I would love to hear your comments as would my fellow contributors to the hop.

Ruffled Dog Collar

Supplies for Dog Collar Ruffle:

Cut the following pieces from oly*fun™

Orange Crush – cut one 5 1/2″ inch x 48″ rectangle for the ruffle

Jelly – Cut one 6 1/2″ x 48″ rectangle for the ruffle lining
& one 5″ x 24″ rectangle for the collar slide & one 3″ x 3 1/2 ” rectangle for the collar tab

Snow White – Press HeatnBond® to the back of a piece of  oly*fun™ and cut three 1/2″ x 20″ strips to be used to cut the accent triangles

Instructions for Dog Collar Ruffle:

When pressing oly*fun:  Set your iron to the silk setting and always use a pressing cloth. Never touch a hot iron directly to oly*fun™. Both sides of oly*fun™ may be considered the right side of the fabric, the choice really is yours to make, however be consistent for a more finished look. All seams are 1/4″ unless otherwise noted.

Dog Collar Ruffles

With right sides together stitch the ruffles together along the 48″ length.   Slide the fabric so that the short ends of the fabric match along each of the side edges. B  One side will be purple the opposite side will be orange with a purple stripe. Stitch both ends. Turn right side out and press carefully.  Top stitch through all layers, sewing 1/2″ down from the purple stripe.

Remove the paper backing from the Snow White oly*fun and randomly cut triangles of different shapes and sizes, fusing the triangles to the right side of the ruffle (Orange Crush).  C  Sew two rows of gathering stitches along the top edge of the ruffle spacing them 1/4″ apart.  D

Turn under the short ends of the collar slide 1 inch, folding the fabric to the wrong side and press.  Stitch 1/4″ away from both the cut edge and the folded edge. E  Fold under 1″ to the wrong side of collar tab, then fold into thirds so that the finished tab measures 1″ x 2 1/2″.  F  Cut two 1″ lengths of Velcro® (hook side- yellow) and two 1″ in lengths of (loop side – blue). Sew one Velcro® hook and one loop to either side at one end of the collar tab. Stitch a loop section of Velcro to the opposite side of the collar slide. (Note: this section of Velcro® is added only if you intend to add the optional bow to the collar.) Measure up 1″ from the edge and stitch the tab to the  top of the collar slide.  G & H

Pull the gathering threads and pin the ruffle to the collar slide right sides together. Stitch using a 1/2″ seam. I & J Press carefully. Turn under the opposite edge of collar slide and pin it on top of the gathers. Top stitch.  L & M

Optional Bow: Cut a 3″ x 36″ strip of oly*fun in desired color. Top stitch 1/4″ away from the raw edges of the bow tie  to add additional color. Tie a floppy bow and hand stitch a 1″ section of Velcro (hook-side) to the back of the bow.

 Insert the dog collar into the collar slide and use the Velcro® closure to secure. Fluff up the ruffle and your pet is ready for the PARTY!
