Patchwork Dog Collar

Yep, you read the title right - a dog collar! : )
I've been wanting to make my dog a sturdy collar so I figured why not try it with patchwork. I use mostly Amy Butler fabric. Here is the pre-collar picture.

I added interfacing to the back and did some extra stitching on the fabric to give it extra support and design. It has a D-ring attached for tags and a leash. Here's the finished product.


I even surprised myself on how well I think it turned out!

On a different patchwork note, I was going through this parenting magazine when I came upon a advertisement for the clothing store Janie & Jack. Look at this super cute patchwork dress with the ribbon around the top. I think I'm going to have to try to make this dress for my daughter. I have until June 10th, right?! : )
