DIY Dog Collar Beading Pattern #137

I've been wanting to make one of these for a long time and finally broke down when I recently rescued a “puppy” that had been abandoned in a foreclosed house. She was in such bad shape that the groomer had to shave her nose to tail. Afterward, she looked like she really needed “something” (besides a sweater and a lot of love), so I designed this colorful little, beaded leather collar to make her feel pretty and brighten her up a bit (what do you expect from a beader?)

The pattern features over 60 high-resolution photos and easy-to-follow step-by-step directions, that “show and tell” you in great detail how to make this 1/2” wide dazzling little collar to fit your toy to small size dog or cat “purfectly”! I also offer some helpful tips on how to select a successful color scheme to compliment your pet's fur color and personality. This design uses a standard plastic side-release buckle (just like the ones on most pet collars these days) so taking in on and off is a snap! The buckles can be found at most fabric and craft stores and, of course, online (I found mine at Michael's and Shipwreck Beads). This collar was designed to be both comfortable yet secure and should hold up to regular wear for many years to come. Go ahead, spoil your little one with a colorful collar that will make him or her look bead-utifle! Thank you for shopping Simple Bead Patterns, and as always, bead happy!

For a larger size pet, or collar design that you can personalize with your pet's name, please see my very cool Personalized Pet Collar pattern.

The beading patterns offered on this website are written in English. We offer translated beading patterns in French, German, Italian, and Spanish on our Etsy shop - just look for images with country flags at the top.  Please note that all products are downloadable beading instructions that will teach you how to make the sample item shown above.  Nothing will be shipped to your physical address (as it is for downloadable instructions only and does not include any tangible materials or finished pieces of jewelry). 

Each of our beading patterns includes a detailed Materials Page that clearly specifies everything you'll need on-hand to make the project (including bead types, sizes, and quantities, as well as any required tools and/or findings).  Each beading pattern features detailed, step-by-step instructions that are written in a clear, simple conversational style.  A full-color close-up photo accompanies each step showing exactly what's happening.

Materials & Quantities Needed

Your purchased beading tutorial will include a detailed materials list of everything you'll need to make this project, including quantities and, in most cases, color information (see more about Bead Color Information below).

Substituting with Different Beads or Beading Materials

Many of our designs can be made using comparable beading materials. For example, if our pattern calls for 4mm round pearls, in most cases, you can use different types of 4mm round beads instead (such as 4mm round fire polished beads). Please note: If the pattern is for a bead weaving (or stitched) project, it's typically not recommended to use different sizes of beads than those recommended, as the original design may not work out as intended. You may also substitute recommended materials with your preferred brand (for example using Nymo vs. FireLine thread) unless otherwise noted for a specific reason. For example, if we specifically recommend using TOHO seed beads with a particular project, the project may not work out as well if you substitute and use Delica seed beads instead (which differ in shape).

Bead Color Information

We provide detailed information about the bead colors used for each of the color samples shown above on the Bead Legend / Color Key (or similarly named page) in your purchased pattern. If the tutorial you purchased does not include detailed color information for a particular color sample we used, we apologize (a few of our earliest patterns did not include this information and we no longer have those beads to reference, or they were discontinued by the manufacturer). If this is the case, please feel free to contact us and we'll do our best to provide you with general color descriptions. Be sure to let us know which particular color sample you're most interested in.
