Hang your tags, con badge or other decorations off the nickel-plated D-ring. Matching fabric slider helps keep the excess strap comfortably out of the way. Make it any color and length you want! These are also WASHABLE! Ironable! Easy to maintain!

Happy collar making!! I have worked hard to create and test this pattern and write up its tutorial! These collars were designed to be worn by people as a costume accent, but are also a cute feature on larger breed dogs as well! If you are making for an actual animal, I make note within the tutorial where to take special care for a strong collar if yours is going to a pet dog.

It is highly appreciated if you use or adapt these techniques on projects, that you share credit that you learned it right here from using my patterns and guides. That way others can discover my tutorials and make their own collar, too!!
