DIY dog scarf

Luna is a 7month old miniature dachshund. She weighs in at about 7 pounds.

A scarf for your favourite pooch is simple to make! Directions are for a small to medium sized dog with a collar that is 3/4″ wide.

Cut a square from valentine fabric, 10″ x 10″

For a larger dog adjust the size of your starting square accordingly.  For a retriever about 15″ is a good size.

Folded square, right sides together

Fold your square in half, right sides together, to make a triangle

 

Cut the points off

With the folded edge away from you cut off the ‘points’ on the right and left side of the fold. I make the length of the cut 1″ so that it will accommodate the 3/4″ collar size.

If you are making this for a larger dog (15″ starter square) adjust your cut line to be approximately 1-3/4-2″ long to accommodate a larger collar.

Open your ‘triangle’ and fold a 1/4″ seam allowance on your freshly cut edges towards the wrong side of the fabric and stitch down.

It should look like this!

 

Fold back into a triangle, right sides together. Stitch a 1/4″ seam along all raw edges. Leave the folded over edge ‘open’.

Trim off the tip on the bottom edge, be careful to not cut through the stitching. Turn the scarf right side out.

Once you get it turned press it flat. Topstitch a seam 1″ from the folded edge, keeping the ends open. This will create the ‘tube’ that you slide the collar into. Also topstitch the perimeter of the triangle.

Slide your dog’s (or cat’s) collar through the tube pocket and you are done!
