This is an awesome tutorial! My dogs may just be getting some new collars soon.


This is so pretty! Thanks for the great idea. My dog's collar is starting to get ratty-looking, so... :)


Thanks for this! I've been keeping my dog's old collars so that I could do this - but wasn't quite sure where to start. Now I know!


wonderful tutorial, thank you for showing us how. Pet loves well love this tut thank you so much.


Great way to reuse old jeans to make dog collars!


Thank you so much for this great tutorial! What a great idea!!!


Thanks for all the nice comments. I appreciate the feedback.

Bon: using old jeans is a great idea--denim is really durable and it would be cute and unique.


What a great tutorial - thanks! I too have been saving old collars but had no clue what to do with them. I've posted a link on my dog-blog at


Thanks for sharing this - I've got so many collars to bring back to life...this allows me to help my pooches express their much better than the generic store bought colors. TY!

I'm trying to reach you to request permission to link to your tutorial (and share a photo) for our upcoming Handmade Holidays on the Sew,Mama,Sew! blog. I couldn't find your contact information. Would you mind emailing so I can give you the details? We love your project and would like to share it with our readers.

Thank you!


I *love* this idea! I hate how grungy the collars get to looking, but I'm too frugal (cheap?) to shell out for a new one too often. Thanks for the awesome tutorial!


OMG What a great idea!!! I love this - my babies will be happy pooches soon! Thanks!!


I just made this... your template rocks! Thank you!

dog collars

I really enjoyed well while reading your blog.I have tried this.I think I need some more time to make proper collar.But its very interesting.Thanks dear!


Great tutorial! Just made a new collar for my kitty. Left out the interfacing as the collar was so small, but otherwise followed the directions. Looks WAY better than the dumb nylon collars that are too expensive! VERY happy with the cotton collar! I think my kitty will be too!

Great idea! I hope you don't mind if I will add your tutorial to my website but definitely giving you all the credits (will quote exactly the same including your website or blog). I have a website about no-sew dog clothes but until now I cannot publish it being a newbie I don't know much about creating a nice web pages.
Thank you for sharing. The more you inspired me. Mine is also like a tutorial on how to make dog clothes with no sewing involve. Maria


This is the tutorial I was hoping I'd find. I can't wait to make my dogs some new collars from their old worn out ones.

Very cool. Excited to try this out now. I've never even considered making collars this way. Thanks for sharing!

This was sooooo cool! I followed these instructions, using some heavy printed fabric. I finished it in about 1hr. I snatched the fittings from a dollar store collar and made the perfect collar for our std. poodle. LOVE IT! Great job!
