How to make a dog collar and leash

There's a super tutorial over at Sew 4 Home that teaches you how to make a dog collar and leash using jacquard ribbon and webbing. Now you can sew your own version of this.

Of course there are many lovely ribbons in the world, but I think your poochie would be especially happy walking around in one my designs. Especially if he's very frugal, likes to golf, and lives in a camper. You can get these at Fat Quarter Shop (sold by the yard) or at J Caroline Creative (sold by the roll).

I don't have a dog, but I have a kitten that bites (and is currently doing so as I type). Do you think I should make her a leash?

Love,
Mum/lovemykittehs,too

Never mind. She fell asleep.

Corie, thanks! I'm glad to have another retailer I can send people to. I don't usually find out where my stuff goes, so thanks for letting me know!

Thank you for sharring, with a new pup in the house that loves to bite his collar this will come in handy.

This is got to be one of the most brilliant DIY projects I've ever seen! See, this is exactly why I love your blog! :-)

I've been thinking about doing this for ages. Thanks for the tutorial. Now if a talented design would whip up some bacon ribbon my pup would be thrilled!

Jess said...

Bacon ribbon! I LOOOVE it! Hmm, I just need to find someone to manufacture it.

Amy said...

I knew I recognized the ribbon I bought! I got the weiner dog ribbon at a fabric shop in Santa Cruz.

Thanks for sharing. Great for making collars that you can customise with your own colors, prints etc. But for walking i'd prefer a more durable one and i don't think i trust my sewing skill hehe.
