Recycled Dog Collar
Recycled Collared Shirt
Start by measuring the dog's neck and finding an old collared shirt with the approximate size of your dogs neck.
Our dog's neck was 15inch.
Check your local thrift store for great bargains on shirts of all sizes.
Start by unpicking the collar from the shirt at the neckline. You can also cut off the collar but you will need to sew a hem around the cut edge to prevent it from fraying.
Alternatively you can embellish the neck line with trim using fabric glue.
To use, simply button it around the dogs neck. If you wish to use to a lead then place the shirt collar over the existing lead collar. It is not recommended to attach the lead to the shirt collar as it may not be durable enough.
