DIY Recycled Dog Shirt-Collar
Recycled Collared Shirt
Seam ripper (thread unpicker)
Optional embellishments (fabric trim, ribbon, studs…)
Start by measuring your dog's neck and finding an old collared shirt with the approximate size of your dog’s neck. Either raid your closets or check your local thrift store for great bargains on shirts of all sizes.
Unpick the collar from the shirt at the neckline. You can also cut off the collar but if you go this route you will need to sew a hem around the cut edge to prevent it from fraying. Alternatively, you can finish the cut edge with decorative trim using a fabric glue like Tacky Craft Glue.
And that’s it! Simply button the collar around your dog’s neck and await the compliments from friends and neighbours alike. Note: it is not recommended to attach your dog’s lead to the shirt-collar as it may not be durable enough to withstand the strain.
