Reversible Dog Scarf

Sorry for so much dog stuff. However, I have many dog owners in my life and with X-mas coming I need gifts! These are easy-peasy. I used an existing dog scarf for sizing but you can also free style it. Just make sure to consider what breed your making the scarf for.

1) Cut two identical triangles of complimentary fabric. Mine roughly measured in at 20" (50 cm) x 12" (30cm) x 12" (30cm).

2) With right sides together sew. Leave a small hole so you can turn the scarf right side out. Once finished trim the seam. I used pinking shears but regular scissors will do too.

3) Turn the scarf right side out through your little hole & iron seams nice and flat. Hand stitch the hole closed.

4) Grab the nearest dog and embellish for festive fun.

I clicked over here from SewMamaSew, I have two of the cutest dogs in the world so thank you for this reversible scarf! I was also wondering if you have done collars, I have seen some people make homemade collars but with no instructions! I am a picture person! Thanks:)

I added a link for dog collars tutorial into my "Online Tutorials I Want to Do" section from Canadian Living Magazine. It was excerpted from Amy Karol's "Bend-the-Rules Sewing". I haven't made it yet so please send me some pics and tell me how it goes!
