Making Dog Leashes


As I continue to make dog collars, I’ve had requests for matching leashes.  I finally got a custom order request and decided it was time to figure this out.

I don’t have a pattern for a leash, I’m just figuring this out as I go.

This was my test fabric.  I didn’t want to mess up the custom order fabrics!!  Winking smile

Here are the special snap hooks I had to order.  Turns out that 1 1/2” snap hooks are not a very common size. This is the largest size of collar I make and it happens to be the size that the special order customer requested.

I finally found a vendor in Hong Kong.  It took a few weeks to get the hooks but here they are!

So here it is.  It was actually easier than I expected.

In the picture below, you can see the matching collar as well.

Now, I’m onto finishing the custom requests now that I’m pretty happy with the finished product!

  2. What a neat idea - collar and matching leashes, makes for cut little dogs! You could have one for each season.
