While working on a new sewing project (a top), I was getting frustrated and ready to give up. I wasn't ready to retire the sewing machine for the evening, and was trying to think of what I could make and not screw up (ie. end the night on a satisfied note) when Peanut ran by. As I mentioned, we are dog sitting my family dog for a couple of days. I thought she defintely needed a new collar, and I got busy. Here's what went down.
Start with some slippery fabric (nylon)
(this was the lining from a thrifted skirt - which I specifically bought to take apart)
Cut a strip, about 4 inches thick
Serge the edges so it doesn't fray (or do a zig-zag stitch as I did)
Fold the fabric and start to sew the ruffle...
Grab some pretty ribbon...
...I sewed two together for a pretty look
Attach the ribbon to the ruffle
