About us

How it all began:
One day I was in a pet shop to buy a collar for my rather large boxador. There was one that I liked and I asked if it was available in large sizes - "yes of course", said the saleswoman, "it is available up to size 45cm/17inch". Politely I suppressed a grin, thanked her: "unfortunately, that's not quite big enough" and left the shop.

I have been tailoring for myself for a long time - so why not for the dog as well? This is how the very first Hundsstern dog collar was created, which my Alfie wore regularly for many years.

Then things happened quite quickly:
Compliments at the dog park and requests for custom-made collars for Alfie's friends encouraged me to found the label *Hundsstern - made for a star* with accessories, sewing patterns and DIY kits for dogs and their humans. The name Hundsstern (Dog Star), which is German for Sirius, the brightest star, is both our label and motto *made for a star*.

For the dog accessories I use selected materials such as webbing with a high tensile strength, metal buckles and fittings with a high breaking load and welded seams, as well as easy-care washable fabrics.

And after that:
• I soon expanded the product range to include a customisable collection of accessories and gifts for dog people.
• Since the end of 2018 we focus on sewing pattern eBooks and DIY kits (patterns plus materials) for do-it-yourselfers. All patterns and instructions are bilingual in German and English, in cm and inches. The instructions have lots of photos and describe everything step-by-step, so that beginners can also achieve great results with them.
• Available since 2019 are stationery items with dog motifs (e.g. planners, notebooks, stickers, gift wrapping) for self-printing as PDF print files/printables.

Follow us on Instagram @hundsstern2.0, where we and our HundssternStars (testers & models) show the patterns and products in action, inform you about news and are regularly live with sewing tips and tricks.

We wish you much fun with our sewing patterns and accessories for your personal dog star!
