For the little kitty...

Here is a little craft to keep your skills sharp. It also makes your cat/dog look hip. Side note for me, it makes my husband shake his head and say, "really?" Start with your run of the mill pet collar. I think mine was a Dollar Tree find. Make sure your collar is sized to fit your pet.

Now search through your collection of buttons (we all know about mine now). I decided to make mine in the same color family, and green really makes his yellow eyes pop. ;) I also chose a variety of sizes and styles. Don't choose buttons that are too big, otherwise your pet might get it caught on something!

Now sew. Sew like the wind! (Three Amigos joke, anyone?) My cat is small enough that the stitches are hidden by the extra material of the color. I sew them all on with one shot, but you certainly can tie off each button.

All done! Now find your pet and enjoy that look of contempt they give you now that you've made them pretty! I hope you enjoy this little how to! Thanks as always for reading and following. If you are reading but not following...why not? That's semi-piracy. Not really.

Love and Whiskers,


  1. Cute idea! I think I'm gonna have to try that, too! Great source of inspiration!
