For Classy Pet's Only, Or Who Want to Be

In correspondence with national pet month.
This week we decided to dress up our pet's with this quick and easy craft.

Here's what you're going to need...
Black Felt Sheet
White Felt Sheet, XLG
Three Black Buttons
High Temperature Glue Gun
Glue Sticks

Here's what you're going to do...

Take you're pet's collar, and cut a piece of white felt, approx. 2-3 inches wider than the collar (depending on how large your pet is), and to the length of the collar w/o the buckle.

Cut three 1 inch long pieces of Velcro. (If your Velcro comes separated in two strips, it's easiest to cut and measure when stuck together.) Do not separate them, use an abundance of Hot Glue for each piece of Velcro and place them near both corners (not too close) and one in the middle along one side (length way). Then add more glue on the Velcro and fold over your felt piece in half. Your pet's collar should fit in the faux white collar.

Next, cut out another piece of white felt into a rectangle (again, depending on how big your pet is). Cut off two smaller rectangles to create a 1-2 inch strip/tab on your rectangle and trip into a blunt point, this piece will cover the buckle on the collar. Then trim the bottom to resemble a 'U'. This will be the bib. Cut another 1 inch Velcro and glue it right below where the buckle would lie. Add more glue to the top and fold over the long tab.

Glue two more 1 inch Velcro to the bib on the top outer corners. Glue again on the Velcro and attach to the faux white felt collar from the inside. Glue two black buttons onto the bib, and one on the tab.

To make your bow, cut out a 7-inch x 3-inch from the black felt. Fold over the corners and glue down. Then fold in that folded corner and glue down. Cut a scrap piece of black felt and tie it around the middle of the bow and fluff. Glue your bow onto the white felt, covering the buckle.

Voila! You've now creating your own personal mini butler!
