Easy Blaze Orange Cowl

It's hunting season here in Wisconsin and living in the country & hearing gun shots can make you kinda nervous.  Especially when you have pets.  I decided to make blaze orange cowls for both of my dogs! I chose fleece due to is snuggly warm quality.

Blaze Orange Fleece
Coordinating Thread
Tape Measure
Cutting Mat / Rotary Cutter or Scissors

Measure your dog's neck circumference with a tape measure.  Add two inches, one for the seam and the other for a looser fit.

Measure the length of your dogs neck as well.  No need to add any length to that you don't even have to finish the seam.

Cut your fabric with your rotary cutter or scissors.

Wrap the fabric around the dog's neck with the outside fabric up against the dogs fur.  Put both end seams up against each other and pinch off where you would like the cowl to be sewn.  Hold that spot!

Make sure your fabric is inside out and sew the ends together where you pinched off.

{ I cut my fabric too long, so I cut the remaining off with pinking sheers }
Double knot both ends of string and clip them close to the knot! Turn inside out!

Be happy that you took a step closer to keeping your pets safe!
