Okay, because I had so many people on my friends list express interest - I'm totally going to make more dog collars!

Because you all have been so complimentary, I am willing to make each of these first collars a custom job - so that means you get to let me know what color and/or pattern you're interested in for your pup! Examples: bright pink, floral pattern; dark blue, star pattern; green, leaf pattern; red plaid. (Don't make it too hard for me though!) Right now I know I can find dog-themed fabrics (bone patterns, etc.) at Jo-ann. I know there are also holiday-themed fabrics, retro-patterned fabrics, and cutesy fabrics like cupcakes and cherries. Give me a first choice and second choice, just in case.

Here is what I have come up with!
Small - $12
approximately 7-11 inches long
3/4 in. wide

Medium - $14
approximately 10-15 inches long
1 in. wide

Large - $16
approximately 15-24 inches long
1 in. wide
(This is what Gage and Una were wearing.)

Extra-large - $18
approximately 19-30 inches long
1 1/2 in. wide

Black buckles, cast nickle D-ring.

If you need a size other than what is listed, let me know and I will see what I can do.

I will probably end up listing collars a little bit higher on my etsy, particularly for custom collars, but I wanted to give a bit of a discount to my first dog-collar customers. :)

Once I finish your pooch's collar, I'll list it on my etsy, reserved under your name and send you the link.

And now... time to work on some baby quilts.

Haha. I won't! I just want to try making a kitty-size one before offering them at large!

Oh good- I need a 1/2" for my Miniature Dachshund! :)

That would be great, I have a hard time finding that size. I usually see 3/8" or 5/8".

I am going to be making another 1/2 inch one, did you want me to try one for you as well?

Yay! I'll measure Baloo and let you know, but we'll definitely be in.

I need an extra large for Maggie. I took her to a festival last weekend and everyone was calling her a boy because her collar is black. So I need something very girly! I don't care what it is, just so it is super girly! Cupcakes, cherries, flowers, your choice. The girliest fabric you can find that you think suits Maggie. :-) Let me know how I need to order it. :-)

I still have some of this fabric left if you like it for her, though I have to see if I have a big enough piece.

Ok, Rob and I just discussed it. We'd like a pink one just like Una's, except Eva-sized, which I guess would be about 8 inches long, and 1/4 inch wide (that's the size of her current collar, anyway).

1/4 in. would be very hard to do in this manner, due to thinness. I could try it but I'm not sure how well it would work out. I could probably do 1/2 in. if you'd be interested in that.

No problem, 1/2 in would be good.

I want a large one for Bella in cherries! I already have fabric, if you want me to send it to you/save it until I see you next.

That's up to you! I can use what you have or pick some up at Jo-ann as they had a number of cherry prints.

I actually have some that picked up at Jo-Ann that I found in the bargain bin and was like, "I have no idea what to do with this, but I figure something will come up eventually". This is it!

Do you know how big of a piece you have?
bellasmommy

It's about a yard, but now that I've looked at it, the print is too big to look good in a dog collar, so if you could find a print with SMALL cherries (or moons/stars), that would rock.

Can do!

We'd love a medium in some kind of jester/diamonds/black and red/Harley Quinn look. We can't find anything like what we're looking for!

Unfortunately I wasn't able to find any fabric like that at Jo-ann. Did you want me to try and find it online? It could be expensive.

That might be easier, since you could send me a link to make sure I like it before you spend the money! :-P I don't mind that it'd be more.
