What You Will Need
To make a detachable flower for your pup's collar, you will need the following materials:
- Felt fabric (any color)
- Sewing machine
- Elastic band
Once you have gathered all your materials, it’s time to start making the detachable flower.
Preparing the Fabric
The first step is to prepare the felt fabric. Lay the fabric on a flat surface and measure out a 4-inch diameter circle. Use a pencil to draw the circle and then cut it out. You should now have a 4-inch felt circle.
Cutting the Fabric
The next step is to cut the fabric. Using the scissors, cut the felt circle into four equal parts. This will be the base of the flower.
Sewing the Fabric
Now, it’s time to sew the fabric. Thread the needle and knot it on one end. Take one of the four pieces and start to sew it onto the other three pieces. Make sure to leave a small gap between the pieces when you sew them together. Once you’ve sewn all the pieces together, you should have a flower shape.
Adding the Felt Center
The next step is to add a felt center to the flower. Cut a small circle out of the felt fabric and then glue it onto the center of the flower.
Adding the Elastic Band
The final step is to add the elastic band. Cut an elastic band that is about 3 inches long and then sew it onto the back of the flower. This will be the detachable part of the flower that you can attach to the dog’s collar.
Finishing the Detachable Flower
Once you’ve completed all the steps, it’s time to finish the flower. To do this, simply knot the thread at the back of the flower.
Making a detachable flower for your pup’s collar is an easy and fun DIY project that you can do in no time. All you need is some felt fabric, a needle, thread, scissors, and an elastic band.
