Adjustable dog collar

Take half a meter of fabric, some cotton webbing, a thread that you would like to use, a D ring, a parachute ring, and a tri-glide clip. Take a dog collar for reference, measure the size based on it as well. Based on the dimensions, cut the fabric accordingly. Fold the strip and then iron it to straighten it out. The strip should now form a triangle-like figure. The cotton Webber should be shorter than the fabric that will cover it. Now with the cotton webbed inside, stitch leaving space of about 1.8 inches from each side. This long fabric strip will serve as the base of the collar.

Take the tri-glide clip and weave it on the side of your belt. Now fold the side in a way it turns inwards and stitch the vertical end of this strip. Stitch along the tri-glide clip to secure it in place as well. Now that both parts of the tri-glide clip are in place, pull one strip from the other side. After the clips are secured, insert the D ring which will then be used to insert a leash for your dog. Make stitches along the way to secure these clips. 

The tri-glide clips and the D-ring allow the collars to be adjustable. Make yours today!
