"Blossoms collar and leash" Tutorial!

Hey guys! Today I'm going to show you how to how to make my version of AG's blossoms collar and leash set! I thought this set was super cute, so I decided to try and make it! I think it turned out pretty well, but it would have been cuter if I had put the flowers closer together.

You will need: a hot glue gun, scissors, small gems( I got mine from a nail decorating pen at dollar tree), a piece of mechanical wire, a sewing machine(optional: you can also hot glue this together), hot pink, light pink, and lime green fun foam, a strip of blue material about 9 inches long(or a little bit longer than around your pets neck) and 1 3/4 inches wide, and a strip of that same material 12 inches long and 1 3/4 inches wide.
First, you will get your blue strips and, one at a time, fold the sides into the middle like shown......
Then fold that in half and sew it down.
Then you will have two pieces that should look something like this.
Grab your longer piece, and glue down the end like shown.
Fold that down and glue it like shown. Make sure your dolls hand can fit through the hole.
Draw a flower with six petals on a piece of foam until you are happy with it.
Cut it out and use it as a template for your other flowers
Trace your first flower onto foam to make 2 light pink, 2 hot pink, and 2 lime green flowers. I would recommend making 3 of each, because I wish I would have put mine closer together and If I would have put them closer together I would have needed 3 if each.
Glue the flowers onto your shorter blue piece.
Then add your gems to the center of each flower.
Cut a piece of your light pink foam and glue it in half, only gluing along the bottom edge, leaving a hole through it as shown
Cut a small square out of the bottom and top middles
Your collar should insert into one end of the pink piece, so make sure that your pink piece fits around it like shown before  gluing it together. Glue it in.
Cut two small T shaped pieces. The top should be as wide as the your collar and the long stick part should be at least an inch.
Cut a piece of your mechanical wire long enough to fit across the top and one to fit down the long part. Glue them on, then glue the second foam piece on top.

Shove it in the other pink piece. This may not be the best way to close it, because I had to shove it in with my scissors, but I couldn't think of any other way to close it.
Go to the other end of your collar and cut a small pink strip of foam and glue it on.
Then fold that edge over, and glue on the long part of the T shaped piece to the place where you just folded over the collar.
And your finished with the collar part!
Doesn't Barksee look so cute with her new collar?!

Here is what the back looks like on the pet.
The last things you're going to do is get your wire, and bend two pieces like the ones shown.
Glue them on the end of your leash, and fold the edge over and glue it, and you are completely done!
Have fun! :)
