Confession time. It’s been THREE years since we released our last free pattern. Ugh. Ugh. Ugh.
When we launched WOW, an important part of our mission was to contribute a free pattern to the sewing community at least once, ideally twice, a year. While there were many years when we met that goal, we are truly sad that we haven’t been able to fulfill it these past few years. But we are super proud of the free patterns we currently have, and they’re some of our most popular, which we also love.
So without further ado, here is the timeless inspiration for our newest free pattern. And since this song has been stuck in our heads for weeks now, it’s only fair that we pass this amazing earworm along to you. You’re welcome.
The funny thing is that neither of us can remotely remember how or why the idea for this pattern came about. ??!??!?? Turning 40 has been going really well for us by the way.
But I think we can all agree that when you love your pet, you always want them to look their best. And this tutorial will help you create a fun, interchangeable pet collar featuring stylish tie and bow tie options.
How cute is that?! No, not the dog! The collar! Although, Ali’s dog Barkley is indeed super cute and handsome, and since he’ll do anything for his momma, he’s always a willing model.
The fun part is that this isn’t a permanent change to your pet’s collar – the band just attaches with velcro tabs around your own collar and then you can choose to use the bow tie or tie option. You know, for all those times your pet needs to QUICKLY up their style game.
(If your eagle eyes noticed that the collar we happened to use in these pictures is holiday-themed, you’d be right. Ali owns dog collars for EVERY season.)
And our pattern includes templates for three sizes for differently-sized pups and kitties.
So now the only problem that we have is that we need one of you awesome cat-loving-readers to sew one of these up for your kitty and send them to us by email or post to your social media. I mean, we all know that cats hate it when dogs have all the fun.
Although we aren’t cat owners ourselves, so maybe we have it all wrong…
