    I really want to make my own lead and collar but I don't have a sewing machine. :( I should as for one for Christmas since I've been wanting to make tons of stuff for Remi. When you guys finish making yours show us some pictures! :)

    I found some cheap ones under a hundred, so I might be able to pay for it myself. It will be a good investement since you never know when you need one :D By the way I love this thread Dlilly (y)

    Here's a link for a parachute cord collar. In case you don't get a sewing machine!
    Another option I saw somewhere is to just do the cord over an existing collar, a good idea also, I think. I'm going to make one(or two) today. I found cool clips with reflectors at Hobby Lobby as well as the cord.

    Same here, love your idea Southerngirl, matching bracelet:love:(y) LOL this could be the start of a whole new enterprise, Designer Dog Collars and Leads by D.T.A. Members!:LOL: And receive a free matching bracelet for yourself. Your pooch will be thrilled to know you also wear a 'collar'.

    Can't wait to see all the custom collar works! So this is funny, look what I made! Please excuse Rocket's unenthusiastic demeanor I had just woken him up to try on his collar. It is 20 inches, so I used about 20 feet for his, 7 feet for mine:cool:

    I have a Husvarqna sewing machine. It wasn't cheap, but I've had it for 7 years now and it still works great!

    Does anyone else do make your own tugs? I use 4 inch sections of fleece to make these tugs. You can learn how to round braid from this great tutorial:

    I also really want to make some collars, but I don't have a sewing machine. :( My library is going to let me check one out though! I'll let you know if I find any good deals. My libarian has found someone who is going to teach me how to use a sewing machine, I'm hoping she can also help me pick one out.
