Martingale collars are similar to flat collars but require a little bit more hardware and a tad bit more effort. But, it’s all worth it, especially if you have a dog that can easily slip off their collars easily.
To make this, you’ll need to select the fabric you want to use and prepare both a long strip and a short one. Then, prepare a D-ring, two rectangle rings, and a triglide ring.
Once you have all that, all you need are your sewing materials, and you’re ready to begin.
Start by inserting the two rectangle rings into the short strip. Fold the ends over to make a loop and stitch them together, leaving a 3-inch flap.
Insert the D-ring into the flap and secure it by sewing the edge down. The work on your short loop is now complete.
Moving on to the large strip, slip it through both slits of the triglide and then fold the strip back around 2 inches and stitch it into place. Loop the 2-inch flap into one of the short loop’s rectangle rings and stitch it down.
Then, loop the other end into the short loop’s other rectangle ring and sew the edge down to secure it. If you pull on the D-ring and the long loop tightens, you’ve successfully made your own Martingale collar!
