DIY: How to Make a Dog Bow Tie

You’ll Need:

– Fabric scissors
– Your choice of fabric (I used a simple check pattern)
– Thick velvet ribbon (or ribbon of your choice)
– Velcro squares with adhesive backing

Prepping Tips:

* Measure your dog’s neck or collar size and trim the ribbon accordingly.
* Make sure it isn’t too small – you want to make sure your pup is comfortable on the big day!

How to Make a dog bow tie

1. Cut your fabric to approximately 4×9 inches. This is a pretty standard size for the bow tie, but if you are making this for a large breed dog, I’d beef up the size.

2. Fold in the top and bottom sides and overlap them slightly.

3. Fold in the left and right sides. You can choose how much you want to overlap based on the desired size of your dog bow tie.

4. Cut a skinny strip of fabric approximately 2×5 inches or longer. It just needs to be long enough to tie (this will be trimmed toward the end).

5. Pinch the center of the folded ribbon with your fingers to create the bow shape.

6. Use your skinny piece of fabric to tie around the center of the bow. Make sure the knot is tight and secure. If you feel unsure, you can always add a dot of hot glue. Trim the excess fabric.

7. Grab your pre-trimmed ribbon and velcro squares. Add a velcro square (the one with the scratchy side) to the center and to the far right end of the ribbon. On the left end of the ribbon, add a fuzzy velcro square to the back side. Using another fuzzy velcro square, add one to the back of the bow.

8. Stick the bow to the center of the ribbon. Attach the ends together and you have a stunning bow-tie that will make your dog feel stylish and ready to party!

  4. This is so adorable! I need to make one of these for Mamma Biscuit, give her a very androgenous/Tilda Swinton look but I’ll have to bedazzle/dimple a spike on either side of that bow tie to give it an East Village punk vibe! Love it!
