Petaled Collar Costume

Source: Martha Stewart


You can use a collar instead of ribbon.

Resources: Wool felt, in Sun (#03), by Wollfilz; Velcro squares, 7/8 inches;


  • Or Sunflower Template

  • Grosgrain ribbon

  • One or two 18-by-18-inch squares wool felt

  • Sewing machine and sewing supplies

  • Self-adhesive

  • Velcro fasteners


  1. Cut ribbon to fit loosely around your pet’s neck, with ends overlapping 1 inch.

  2. Print petal template or sunflower template. Trace the shape on the felt, and cut out petals. Fold them in half lengthwise, and stitch close to the fold, from the flat end to 2/3 of the way up; this will give the petals dimension. Stitch the petals to the ribbon, overlapping them by almost half. Add Velcro fasteners at the ends of the ribbon.
