March Madness Mutt Fuzzy Collar

Bella_collar_1

I made these fuzzy collars for the pups to wear when the Jayhawks played in the tournament.  Unfortunately, they did not bring us luck--and that's all I have to say about that. To make them, cut a piece of elastic that's about 1 inch wide so that it's about 1 inch longer than your dog's regular collar. Sew the two ends of the elastic together. Then tie the ends of two piece of fuzzy, contrasting thread to the elastic. 

Using the two threads as one, take a crochet hook and crochet around the elastic until it's completely covered. Tie off your loose ends and you're done!
