I made these today for a doggie friend named "Maya".... I used this tutorial for reference. But instead of ribbon I used some Amy Butler prints... I really like the way this one above came out. I used a brushed black nickel finish clasp looks a little tough. this one (above) was my "practice" run, first attempt...still came out pretty cute but I ended up changing a few things on second collar.
