Trim to a 6 ½” (16.5cm) square with the seam as the center diagonal line of the square. The 14 squares of I and J will make (28) 6 ½”x 6 ½” (16.5 x 16.5cm) half square triangles.

Step 1Step 1

  1. Do the same with G and H. The 12 squares of G and H will make (24) 6 ½”x 6 ½” half square triangles.
     
  2. Sew a 1 ½ x 4 ½” (3.8 x 11.4cm) strip of J on opposite sides of the 4 ½” (11.4cm) squares of A and B. Press open. Sew a 1½” x 6½” (3.8 x 16.5cm) strip of J along the top and bottom of the A and B squares. Press open.

Wooftastic Collar

Materials

  • 1/8 yard (11.4cm) PWKD076 RED
  • 1/8 yard (11.4cm) PWKD076 LIME
  • 1” (2.54cm) parachute buckle
  • 1” (2.54cm) strap adjuster
  • 1-1/4” (3.2cm) metal d-ring
  • 2/3 yard (60.4cm) 1” (2.54cm) strapping

Cutting

From each fabric cut one 2-1/4”x 21” strip.

Instructions
Note: ¼” (.64cm) seam allowance unless otherwise noted.

  1. Match the two strips on the long edge along one long edge. Sew seam on this edge. Press open seam allowance.
     
  2. Press one long, raw edge toward the previously sewn seam, wrong sides together. Repeat on other long edge. Fold the strip in half lengthwise so all the long raw edges are in the center. This will give you a 1” (2.54cm) wide strip resembling double-fold bias tape. Press well.
     
  3. Open strip and fold in half, right sides together, so the raw edges pressed into the middle are visible. Stitch across one short end. Trim seam allowance. Repeat on other side. Turn strap right side out and press. All raw edges are now inside the strap.
     
  4. Fold one short end 3” (7.6cm) toward the LIME side and press well. Fold the opposite short end 2” (5.08cm) toward the LIME side and press well.
     
  5. Feed the 3” (7.6cm) pressed side of the collar through one D ring (domed side up) and then through the female end of the parachute buckle. Move the D ring toward the center of the collar so you can stitch through the collar close to the buckle.

     

  6. Slide the D ring close to the line of stitches you just made. Sew a parallel row of straight stitches on the other side of the D ring.
     
  7. Sew a box stitch to secure the short edge of the collar.
     
  8. Feed the other end of the collar through the strap adjuster, using the outermost bars (leave the center bar free for now). Keep a loop of collar fabric about 2” (5.08cm) above the adjuster.
     
  9. Feed the end through the male portion of the parachute buckle, making sure it is right side up and clicks into the other end.
     
  10. Insert the end of the collar strap up through the bottom of the strap adjuster, then feed the end back down until the fold you pressed is against the center bar. Sew a 1” (2.54cm) box stitch to secure the end of the collar. Adjust to desired collar size.

  1. Match up one RED strip with one LIME strip and sew together the short ends, right sides together. Repeat with other RED and LIME strips.
     
  2. Match the two joined strips on the long edges so the colors are reversed (RED to LIME, LIME to RED). Sew along one long edge. Press open seam allowance.
     
  3. Press one long, raw edge toward the previously sewn seam, wrong sides together. Repeat on other long edge. Fold the strip in half lengthwise so all the long raw edges are in the center. This will give you a 1” (2.54cm) wide strip resembling double-fold bias tape. Press well.
     
  4. Open strip and fold in half, right sides together, so the raw edges pressed into the middle are visible. Stitch across one short end. Trim seam allowance. Repeat on other side. Turn strap right side out and press. All raw edges are now inside the strap.
     
  5. Press the LIME short edge 2” (5.08cm) toward the RED. Slip the swivel latch through and stitch straight across the lease, close to the hardware. Sew a box stitch to secure the short end to the leash.
     
  6. To make the leash handle, press the RED short edge 10” (25.4cm) toward the LIME. Secure with a box stitch.
