Collars made from these ribbons make them special and although they are hard wearing and stand up to quite a bit of ruff and tumble I'd say they are more for a run in the park rather than an afternoon at the river. Great for gifts, one can never have too many collars after all... The only time I had one returned to me was because the dog was dipping in and out of the Caribbean continuously and the salt rusted my metal hardware!..but the actual fabric part withstood the soakings surprisingly well.
These collars are a bit of a fashion statement with so many different ribbons styles to choose from.
Enjoy the new offering of the starter and deluxe kits - it really is a great idea and is a such a time and cost effective way of getting the different elements together.

How to make a Dog Collar
Take your pup walking in style this year! With our beautiful ribbon, hardware, webbing, and a couple of hours you can make your very own boutique-style dog collar and leash. This is such a fun and easy project, you’ll soon be offering to make them for all your canine friends! We chose Renaissance Ribbons for the ultra-stylish ribbon on both our sets. We even added a couple cute embellishments to each of our samples. There’s a slip-on bow tie for the dapper dog, and a set of pompoms and jingle bells for the party animal.
We chose the metal ring rather than the plastic ring featured in the tutorial.
These stitches will be used in a minute to create a secure and sturdy dog collar. If you are a new sewer, you may want to practice these stitches on some scrap fabric before trying it on your new dog collar. First up is the Triple Stitch:
Slide our triglide on, weaving it through the dog collar. This is done by slipping the webbing up through one side of the triglide, over the center bar, and back down through the other slot. Leave about an inch on one side to loop back under the triglide.
Sew the triglide in with a Box Stitch ( As seen in Step Ten ) It should now be at the very end of your dog collar.
Slide the male end of the side release buckle onto the dog collar. First insert the webbing from the bottom of the buckle through the inner slot, over the crossbar then down through the outer slot. Pull it all the way up to the triglide. The male prongs should face the triglide.
Now weave the webbing back through the triglide. This should lock the male end of the buckle in a loop made by the collar and triglide.
Slide the D-Ring onto the dog collar. It doesn't matter where it ends up at this point.
Take the female end of the buckle and slide it up to your desired collar length. ( See the chart at the beginning of this How To for the finished length ) For all collar sizes except Mini, go ahead and Triple Stitch the female buckle end in place.
Nylon, polypropylene, and polyester webbing can all be sealed using an open flame. Hold the end of your webbing close to but not directly in the fire. Sweep the material back and forth close to the flame to evenly seal the ends. Do not catch the webbing on fire as it will create a burnt look on the end of your webbing.

I love this company. Terrific customer service! I love the Tula kit of the month club. Excited every month for the new project to arrive. Very generous with what you get. Recently joined VIP because I love the company “sew” much!
These are the most gorgeous little ladybugs 🐞 Renaissance Ribbons are the most exquisite and unique ribbons I have ever seen. They add sparkle and luxury as trimming to any garment or project 💖 Truly one of a kind!
I really enjoy shopping at your shop. It is very easy to navigate, and there is always something that gives me new ideas every time I shop here
This is beautiful ribbon just like all the ribbons I have purchased from Renaissance Ribbons. I love the bright colors and the ribbons I have purchased are all of high quality. The website is easy to navigate (and quite fun to explore!). The ribbons come nicely packaged and I feel like I am opening a gift when they arrive.
These vintage ribbons are absolutely beautiful! The photos don’t give them justice. I plan on making a crossbody sling bag and am using Moda grunge fabrics for my backing. The grunge fabric is a perfect platform for these ribbons to to the subtle, colors. Can’t wait to make it!!
I just ordered this Ribbon for the 3rd time. This ribbon can be used in so many different projects. Has lots of color and a good width and the quality is great. I get so many compliments about the Renaissance ribbons I use.
I bought some other webbing from a major retail fabric store and it was relatively loose and flimsy. This webbing is stiff, feels substantial and stitches like a dream on my machine! Highly recommend.
I received a monthly bag kit from Renaissance Ribbons each month for the last 8 months or so. I also had three months of the black and white. I just love each bag. Once I got the zipper facing the right direction, they went together well. I am so pleased. I am giving the bags away as Christmas gifts. I have a lot of granddaughters.
These bag kits are beautiful! The directions and instructional video are well done. I can't wait to see the next kit's contents of fabric and ribbons! They will make gorgeous Christmas gifts.
They were amazing!!
My first project incorporating Tula Pink fabric and Renaissance Ribbons and I am loving the color palette and designs. There are so many possible project ideas for which this pack can be used! I am making a pop-up storage bin for my 12 year old granddaughter's room. She loves animals, visiting the zoo, and wants to be a vet!
Serious quality ribbon that matches the fabric. It will be perfect on the bag I’m making! I love this company as they make everything they do perfect!
Order came quickly. Nicely wrapped with special touches.
Always good quality as usual!
Haven't used yet but my expectations have been met. Very Cute Cats.
This webbing is great quality. Will work great for my next project.
