Why didn’t I think of this a long time ago? Elvis is always destroying his store-bought collars, which are made with some really horrible synthetic fabric that shreds like crazy when he scratches his neck. I was going to pick up another collar at the pet shop, but this morning I decided instead to make a new collar with a couple of ribbon scraps. It was so easy — just sew the two pieces of ribbon together, and stitch it all back together using the recycled hardware from the old collar. Elvis didn’t really want to show it off (he is a completely uncooperative subject), but I finally managed to get a photo with his head up so you can see the collar. I bet everybody makes these, and I am the last person to figure it out.
