DIY Bow Tie for a Dapper Dog
Dress codes don't apply to dogs. Still, your little one might enjoy the heart-melting power a bow tie earns him at the next dinner party — not to mention the extra treats. Follow these easy steps to boost the cute in his collar.
What You Will Need
- 2 pieces of Velcro
- A strip of fabric 2x5 inches for the middle
- A strip of fabric 4x9 inches for the bow
- Ribbon cut to fit comfortably around your pooch’s neck
Fold the 4x9 piece in half, width-wise.
Fold 1/3 of the material back on itself.
Fold over the other side.
Using the 2x5 piece of fabric, fold 1/3 of it over itself width-wise. Then fold the other side over the top of that.
Pinch the bow in the middle and tie the strip in a knot.
Cut off the excess.
Place one Velcro square on the front-middle of your ribbon, and a connecting square on the underside of your bow tie. Then place another set of corresponding Velcro squares on your ribbon’s front right side and under its left side.
Attach the bow tie to your party pooch and mingle in style.
