DIY "Adopt Me" Leash Accessory



Craft for Shelters is just around the corner so Sebastian and I have been busy organizing our local event!  We wanted to add new items this year for our volunteers to make and this is one of them.  The "Adopt Me" leash accessory is an easy no-sew project that slips over the dog's leash.  The bandanas we've made in the past are great and have always been a huge hit, but finding enough volunteers who know how to sew always seems to be a challenge!


Check out how easy these "Adopt Me" signs are to make!

INSTRUCTIONS:

What you'll need - Sturdy fabric (I used recycled denim from old jeans)
- Letter Stencils or Fabric Chalk
- Tulip Slick Paints in bright colors
- Black Fabric markers or Black Sharpies
- Fabric Glue (Aleene's new Quick Dry Fabric Fusion worked great for this!)
- Iron and Ironing board


Sebastian is modeling the small sign we made.  Luckily for me, he loves everything momma makes!


1. Cut out a 9"X6" rectangle for small sign or an 18"X6.5" for large sign.  You can also change this size based on the size of the stencils you are using.
2. Iron the piece in half lengthwise to create the middle crease and open back up.  Then iron all 4 sides inward half an inch to hide all the raw edges.
3. Glue all 4 seams in place. (Picture 4 shows how it should look when finished with these steps)


5.  Use chalk to place your letters - this will help prevent mistakes!  Notice how that middle crease you made in the beginning helps with the placement of the letters on both sides.
6. Trace the letters with fabric paint.  I made my letters extra thick with two lines of paint.
7.  Pick a table to set all of these pieces down to dry.


I made the stenciled sign 18" long only because I measured my stencil at 17" long when I taped the letters together.  Ended up working out perfectly and I'm diggin' the size for the large dogs.


8. Once the paint is completely dry, glue the two long sides together at the seams.  The middle crease will help everything line up.
9. Let the glue dry completely before testing out your new leash accessory.


I hope you guys like it!

XOXOXO,
Erika and Sebastian
