Does your dog go through their collars quickly? Dog collars can be expensive to buy & since you have the hardware from all the old collars, why not make one of your own? This instructable will show you how to make an adjustable dog collar.

I have recently started a DIY pet blog called Bloggie Stylish where you can find other tutorials like this one.

Step 1: Tools & Supplies You Will Need

You will need some sort or webbing like nylon, cotton or polypropylene, a pair of scissors, a D-ring, slide lock and plastic snap (which you can scavenge off of an old collar, and a sewing machine. The flexible measuring tape is only if you want to measure your dog's neck.
What type of threading would you suggest I use to ensure its sturdy?
Good job! How thick/heavy was your webbing? I have used nylon webbing to replace a fake leather handle on a leash before and it was hard to get the tension to work to sew through the thickness. I have a Singer Touch and Sew, circa 1966 ish and I had trouble with the thickness, but eventually got it done. <br>
